Concert to benefit disabled riders

TICKETS have gone on sale for a concert at St Mary’s Church in aid of Wyfold

TICKETS have gone on sale for a concert at St Mary’s Church in aid of Wyfold Group Riding for the Disabled.

Aliquando Chamber Choir will be bringing the full drama of Handel’s

to life at the Hart Street venue on Saturday, November 14.

Backed by a double choir, orchestra and pianist Anita D’Attelis, leading soprano Patricia Rozario OBE sings the role of the Queen of Sheba and countertenor Timothy Morgan is Solomon.

The oratorio sees Solomon’s wisdom put to the test by two harlots — played by Meryl Davies and Helen Withers — fighting over a baby.

Wyfold Group Riding for the Disabled is an independent charity providing horse riding facilities for people with physical or mental disabilities in the South Oxfordshire and Reading areas. For those unable to ride, carriage driving is also available.

A spokesman for the Aliquando Chamber Choir said: “We are proud to be working with the Wyfold RDA this year and to be associated with the wonderful team of trustees and volunteers. Their horses and ponies provide therapy and fun.

“We know singing is just as good for our wellbeing — so it would seem we are a perfect team working together to make this concert a very special experience for everyone.”

The concert starts at 7.30pm. Tickets are now on sale priced £20 for reserved seating and £16 for unreserved. To book, call (01491) 578238. For more information, visit
