Choir raises £9,300 for Poppy Appeal

A CONCERT by the Aliquando chamber choir at St Mary’s Church in Henley raised £9,300 for the Poppy Appeal.

The concert on the evening before Remembrance Sunday was a sell-out. The programme of music featured work by Gounod, Bruckner and Elgar and performances by soprano Lisa Rijmer, tenor Alex Haigh and pianist Joanna Miller-Shepherd.

Anne Evans, musical director of the choir, said: “The support we received from our community, friends and local businesses, financial and in other equally valuable ways, was second to none. We would like to thank them all most warmly for their generosity.”

She said the choir was looking for another charity to support next year. For more information, visit
