ST KEYNE AT CHRISTMAS

ST KEYNE AT CHRISTMAS

19 Dec 2018

7.30pm

St Keyne Church is a lovely place for a concert, and we are really looking forward to singing there again this year. According to legend St Keyne was a princess who lived like a hermit and was responsible for the construction of St Keyne "wishing" well just outside the village. Making a Christmas wish before the concert might be a good idea - but check on the rest of the legend before you let your other half drink the water first.

One of our favourite events of the year: the log fire is burning in the Great Hall and we are invited to sing under the tens of thousands of dried flowers that make up the amazing Cotehele garland. It's a magnificent display and a lovely occasion not to be missed. See you there!

THANK YOU IN OUR 95th YEAR!

THANK YOU IN OUR 95th YEAR!

12 Aug 2018

After 95 years since the choir was formed in 1923, it's lovely to be able to use our special anniversary to thank our amazingly generous audiences and supporters. So far this summer, with more concerts to come, we have helped raise nearly 425 for Cornwall Air Ambulance, 330 for Liskeard Hospital's Triangle Centre for patients and their families affected by cancer, and around 1400 for the RNLI in Looe, Fowey and Polruan, plus other generous donations. Thank you all, lovely people!
