A CONCERT evening held in Caversham earlier this month raised £330 for Cancer Research UK.

Rivarate choir presented a varied programme at Caversham Heights Methodist Church on Saturday, February 9, with a combination of popular and classical pieces.

The evening began with a rendition of It Don’t Mean a Thing If It Ain’t Got That Swing.

Other songs included On My Own from the musical Les Misérables, sung by the choir, Empty Chairs And Empty Tables sung by Ameer Choudrie and Wake Up Little Susie by the men’s barbershop ensemble, accompanied by Pam Asbury. The traditional American song Shenandoah was sung in memory of long-standing member, Tony Cleare, who died suddenly in January.

Members of his family asked for donations for Cancer Research UK, and £330 was collected by the audience.

Rivarate was formed in September 2008, with Alison Golby as musical director and Mrs Asbury as her accompanist.

It has grown in number from 22 to 85 in less than five years.
