St Michael and All Angels Parish Church, Bramhall, will be hosting the first Come and Sing Day since the pandemic, and they are excited to have everyone together again from 9am to 4.15pm.
The choir’s music director John Pomphrey will be guiding everyone through some of the choir’s favourite pieces. A wide variety of music will be studied, looking at a Medley from My Fair Lady, pieces from The Lion King and some Gilbert and Sullivan operettas – something for all to enjoy!
Last year saw the 30th anniversary of the event, alongside St Ann’s Hospice turning 50 years old too, so there is lots to be celebrated with new and old friends.
The Come and Sing Day is always held close to World Palliative Care Day, recognising its significance alongside the choir’s event is always a very special occasion.
In the last 30 years of these events over £770,000 has been donated to St Ann’s Hospice through the choirs’ continued fundraising efforts. This year it is even more important to raise money to support their new Build It Together campaign, which is raising the final £2m the hospice needs for its new building to transform their end-of-life care.
There is a real buzz around the day as the choir gets ready and are hopeful to see lots of new faces who will hopefully become members of the choir!
They are hoping to have around 120 choristers from the Greater Manchester area joining them. Gathering altogether again since the pandemic to see friends they have missed is adding to the excitement of the day.
