Jericho Singers raising funds for the Wharf Trust
On December 17 at 7.30 pm Jericho singers will be holding a concert at St Barnabas Church to raise funds for the Jericho Wharf Trust (JWT).
Jericho Singers now has over 50 registered who rehearse at St Barnabas Church. The founder and inspiration is JWT trustee Steph Pirrie. She says: “We have a hugely diverse community in Jericho and music is a good way of bringing people together. It’s fun, builds friendships and allows you to work with people you would never normally meet. We’re achieving that through the breadth of the music, including pop, rock, jazz, folk and classical.”
This concert will be a ‘live hookup’ with Cherwell School Gospel Choir. Each choir will perform some of its own repertoire and both choirs will also perform together. There will also be appearances by local musicians—as well as Christmas Carols, cakes, tea and coffee and mulled wine.
Concert goers will also be able to learn more about the proposed development and talk to JWT trustees.
Limited car parking at St Barnabas School.
Admission is free, but all donations gratefully received!
