A year on since Witchert Chorale's last concert on home territory — the choir has been in London, Berlin and even Long Crendon in recent months — the group will celebrate by performing with the Trinity Camerata at their next Haddenham concert at St Mary's Church on Saturday 16th November.
In the first half of the concert, there will be joyous and inspiring music by JS Bach to delight in — a short Sanctus, Lobet den Herrn and the beautiful Magnificat in D major.
The second half will be the choir's usual varied programme, mixing pieces by Stanford, Mozart, Parry with instrumental suites, nursery rhymes and show song.
The concert is being hosted by the Haddenham Village Society, who will take half the proceeds in support of various Haddenham organisations. The other half of the proceeds will go to Cancer Research. As usual Witchert Chorale try to keep their costs as low as possible, in order to maximise the amount they can raise.
Refreshments will be provided by the Haddenham Village Society and Friends
Tickets are available from Blooming Fruity, on Banks Parade in Haddenham, from Henriette Webb (01844 291347), or Alison Court (01844 291553) or from members of the choir.
£12 (£10 concessions, £3 children of school age)

Thanks to the amazing community response last autumn for poppies and doves for Remembrance Day, we have stored a large number of poppies that were knitted, crocheted or crafted from felt.
