Choir Raises Funds for the Homeless
Songs from the musicals at the Brentham Club
Ealing Choral Society raised £1500 for homeless people last Saturday night, singing songs from the musicals at a concert supper held at the Brentham Club. The funds raised will go to the Ealing Churches Winter Night Shelter, which helps homeless people in Ealing struggling at this time of year.
Alison Wood, who was at the concert representing ECWNS, said, “Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the evening, particularly joining in with old favourites such as Singing in the Rain and Get me to the Church on Time! ECWNS are delighted to receive this money for the Night Shelter and it will greatly benefit our homeless guests during these cold winter months.”
Ealing Choral Society’s conductor Jonathan Williams added, “The choir is delighted to have helped ECWNS with their vital work. We also had a lot of fun singing these all-time classics, and getting the audience to join in. Perhaps some people have found their voice and will now join the choir!”
The audience also enjoyed a delicious two-course supper plus an auction during the evening, and were treated to a piano solo of Debussy’s Clair de Lune from Charles Economou.
Ealing Choral Society formed in 1962 has just celebrated its 50th anniversary. It is one of London’s top choirs with over 90 singers. New members are always welcome.
Rehearsals are held every Monday at Ealing Green Church Hall from 7:30 – 9:40 pm starting in the New Year on the 14th January 2013.
