[T]here will be two opportunities to hear the Eden Singers perform their 40th Anniversary Spring Concerts at Penrith Methodist Church on Wednesday 18th and Thursday 19th April at 7.30pm.
Eden Singers are delighted to be donating the proceeds from these concerts to Hospice at Home who make a tremendous difference to local patients in need of hospice care in the home.
Eden Singers is a mixed choir of around 55 voices drawn from all over the Eden area with the aim of providing enjoyment both for its members and audiences by performing a wide range of popular, light classical and religious music. This Spring they will be performing a medley from Les Miserables and another from Joseph and his Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat, a trio of pieces to commemorate the 100th Anniversary of the end of WW1, The Flower Duet, Calon Lan and many more.
The Choir was founded 40 years ago by Ron Emmerson, assisted by his wife Em and son David. His previous choirs included Penrith Police Male Voice Choir, The Penrith Mixed-Voice Choir and The Beacon Choral Society. John Helyer, the Music Director, took over leadership of the choir in 2015 and under his direction it has gone from strength to strength. There are some beautiful arrangements included in the performances which will give an opportunity to showcase the talent within the choir and its lovely blend of voices.
Tickets priced at £6, are available from Styleline Hairdressers, Beckside Books, Narrowbar Café or at the door.
Cara Varty, Fundraiser for Hospice at Home said: “Please bring your friends and family along for this wonderful Spring Concert. The funds raised from this event will help us achieve our aim to provide more care for more people in the future. On behalf of all future patients, families and carers I would like to thank everyone involved in this event.”
