Fundraising with a Passion

We started our new season in the beautiful surroundings of Beechwood Park at our Late Summer Fete, to kick off our massive St Matthew Passion fundraising project. Thank you to the 100 friends who joined us, and raised the princely sum of £2,000.

Rehearsals for the St Matthew Passion are already under way, interspersed with bursts of Mozart Requiem (St Martin-in-the-Fields, 26 September). We are awed and excited in equal measure by the prospect of performing the St Matthew Passion in the round in St Albans Abbey on 13 February, to convey the full drama of this great piece of choral music.

Fancy giving us a hand with our fundraising? A tenner for a tenor? We’re hoping to raise £1,000 from a crowd-funding initiative by the end of September, and every little helps. Click here to join in, and here to make the most of your contribution through gift aid!

With many thanks.
