Preparations are really hotting up for our forthcoming concert of Mendelssohn’s Elijah, with the Lindsey Chamber Orchestra (Leader Barbara Tune). Our soloists for the performance are Maxine Taylor, Carolyne Storey, Angela Hartley, Philip Scard and Ian Thomson-Smith.

The concert will start at 7.30pm in Snaith Priory on Saturday March 19th with tickets costing £10 and £5 for students.

Goole Carol Singing

Saturday, December 12th, 2015

In the worst weather of the winter so far, 20 members gave up an hour of their Saturday morning to sing Carols in aid of Martin House Childrens’ Hospice. Situated outside the Junction for the first half hour, and outside The Lime Tree Coffee shop on Boothferry Road for the second. Thanks to the Lime Tree for our interval refreshments.

In total we managed to collect £69.90 which, considering the atrocious weather, was a really good effort from the people of Goole, and we hope that this donation will make a real difference to some child’s Christmas.
