A Bath Choir will be putting on a free admission concert on Saturday August 6th in memory of a former member.
The Bath Chorus will be singing in the centre of Bath at St Michael’s Church. The concert starts at 7-30pm and all proceeds will to Macmillan Cancer Support.
Sarah Carlisle lived at Timsbury. She was a member of the choir for a number of months. She died last November aged 45 leaving a husband Alex and two children.
Chorus leader Grenville Jones said;
“A number of the girls in the Chorus ran the Race for Life a few weeks ago in memory of Sarah and raised over a thousand pounds. We all agreed that we would like to do something as a choir and the concert is for Macmillan Cancer Support. This was chosen by Sarah’s husband Alex.
“I know that Sarah’s family were supported by Macmillan during her final weeks. She was such a vibrant lady and the music at the concert will reflect this.”
The Bath Chorus wowed a packed Bath Abbey on the recent Party in the City Friday night. Last November they performed in Bath Abbey in the presence of the Duchess of Cornwall and this March with the famous RAF Central Band. This concert raised over £10,000 for Help for Heroes.
There are no tickets for the August 6th concert at St Michael’s. Everyone is welcome and there will be a retiring collection for Macmillan. Also appearing will be popular jazz violinist Lizz Lipscombe.
On December 10th the Bath Chorus sing with X factor star Rhydian Roberts at Grenville Jones’s big Christmas show at the Bath Forum.
