Choral singers including the popular St Edmundsbury Male Voice Choir are among those performing for EACH at Trinity College Chapel

October 31, 2022

Singers plan to hit the right note during a special charity concert at Cambridge’s prestigious Trinity College Chapel.

The event, in aid of East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH), is taking place on Sunday 4 December and will feature the popular St Edmundsbury Male Voice Choir.

The choir, formed in 1988, has 60 members from Bury St Edmunds and its surrounding villages and as far afield as Ipswich, Norfolk and Cambridgeshire. It performs a wide repertoire of songs from 1940s swing to Welsh traditional and classical songs, folk songs and recent popular music. In addition to performing in the East of England, the choir has toured extensively in the UK and Europe.

The choir will be performing with guest soprano Gemma Alexander, while others showcasing their talent will be award-winning acapella quartet Portobello Road and members of the Trinity College Choir.

The event, which starts at 4.00pm, has been organised by long-time EACH supporter Alan Moggridge.

“It promises to be a lovely evening,” said Alan, who previously organised a similar concert and, over the years, has raised nearly £20,000 for EACH.

“I’m very much looking forward to it and hope we raise as much as possible. There are so many worthwhile and special charities out there but I feel a particular connection with EACH.

“We’ve got a broad range of talent performing and it’s such a stunning venue. It’s such a beautiful place and our event is going ahead with kind permission of the Masters and Fellows of Trinity College.

“Musically, there should be something for everyone and it’s a real treat to be welcoming the St Edmundsbury Male Voice Choir. There aren’t many all-male choirs around and I’m not sure of any others in East Anglia.”

Adult tickets for the concert, which is being sponsored by Bidwells LLP, Aristo Caters and Lodge Tyres, cost £20.00. This includes a programme, a complimentary interval drink and canapes. The cost for children 14 and under is £10.00, which also includes an interval drink and canapes.
