Welcome to Colchester Chamber Choir

WE DID IT – 33 CHURCHES IN A DAY!

We completed our Choral Steeplechase on Saturday September 9th and surpassed our 2014 tally by singing in 33 churches in Ipswich, Hintelsham, Boxstead, Hadleigh, Newton Green, Sudbury and Bures ending up in the wonderful St Stephen’s Chapel. We started at 10am and sang through the day until 6pm performing a short unaccompanied work in each church before racing on to the next steeple. It was hard work but enormous fun and we hope that the visitors to all the churches enjoyed our short performances. We certainly enjoyed singing!

Last time we raised a total of £2,400 – we’d love to top that this time. All money raised will be divided between the Suffolk Historic Churches Trust and the choir’s Choral Apprenticeship scheme for young singers, as well as helping to fund young players for forthcoming programmes.

Our ‘Choral Steeplechase’ is part of the annual Ride & Stride event which raises many thousands of pounds for the repair and upkeep of historic churches.
We will post pictures from the day very soon.
