Our Christmas Concert this year, "A Festive Noel", was one of our best concerts ever! We love singing in the beautiful St Nicolas'Church, and the concert was a sell out, with the audience loving the varied mix of carols, songs and instrumental performers. There was a wonderful 'feel good' atmosphere! Many thanks to the Gloucester Academy of Music Senior Strings, who delighted us with a brilliant and varied programme, and to our own Sarah Gray, who gave us some wonderful flute solos, and also accompanied one of the choir songs. Thanks, too, go to Rachel Hobby, our brilliant accompanist, who not only accompanied the choir, but also Sarah's solos, and played her violin with the Senior Strings! And she's a pretty good drummer as well! Finally, of course, thanks to Jane Ward Watts, our fantastic Musical Director, who plans the programme, prepares us brilliantly, and inspires us with so much confidence on the night! 

This year we are supporting Focus, the charitable fund for the Gloucestershire Oncology Centre, and were pleased to have Richard Smith, their head of fundraising, with us to tell us a bit about their work.
