The Class Choir really enjoy participating in the Big Sing, an all day Singathon in aid of St Michael's Hospice. The event was held on October 12th this year and has so far raised £2654.55 with donations still to come in. It's great that we could be part of this and help towards raising such a fantastic amount.
Here are some photos of this year.

Summer concert review

Many thanks to Dr Brian Hick for the review below of our summer concert. The review was posted in Lark on July 25th 2019. Lark is a website which publishes "Reviews and news of concerts, recitals and events across the land, with a bias towards 1066 Country."

The Class Choir
St Clement’s Church, Hastings, Wednesday 24 July 2019
The Class Choir gave their summer concert to a very relaxed audience on a very warm evening. This was a collection of familiar songs and some which were new to the choir if not to those of us enjoying them.
They got off to a bright start with Here comes the sun – not always a wise choice in the summer but on this occasion spot on. Mr Blueskies seemed equally apt, and its unaccompanied harmonies were impressive. Conductor John Cornford takes Both sides nowat quite a pace but relaxation followed in Wade in the Water. Two blockbusters followed in quick succession – I will follow him and Never enough – before a more reflective version of Adele’s When we were young. We’ve heard The Rhythm of Life at previous concerts but it was none the less welcome before the more complex arrangement of Symphony. Coming to the end of a fine hour of music making, they climaxed with Don’t stop me now but ended on a more reflective if sentimental note with Candle on the water.
The group seems to go from strength to strength – though is always open to new members who are welcome to join their numbers.
