One more thing…

Would you like to sing with the BBC Radio 4 Christmas Appeal with St Martin-in-the-Fields Choir?

Last year we brought together volunteers to form a Choir, who performed ‘In the Bleak Midwinter’ and ‘Beautiful City’. It was great to be involved in what is now becoming a regular feature of the Appeal, and the Choir did a fantastic job.

This year, we would love you to join us in coming together again to perform the Jackson Browne song ‘Rebel Jesus’. We are looking for 30 people to make up the choir; no previous experience is necessary, just lots of enthusiasm!

We will be performing this in the Carol Service on 6th December and the full rehearsal for the song will be on 28th November 2017 at St Martin-in-the-Fields from 6pm.
