The Harlington Voxy Sunshine Concert July 2018
Wow! What a great concert filled with happy times, fun and lots of new soloists and choirs taking to the stage, some for the very first time! We were thrilled to see all 4 VoxChoirs perform together so beautifully, its an amazing achievement and we’re so thrilled to have welcomed Julia Krajewska our new Voxy leader who runs our Cove Farnborough VoxChoir on Tuesdays and also Woking on Thursdays!
We ran an auction this year to add to the raffle total and people literally went nuts bidding on our top prize of Recording studio day gifted by Mixed Up Studios Fleet, a Rose quartz facial by Jayne Lacy and a VoxSkool Singing lesson – took our total fundraising to £1005.00!!
We are going to use the money to set up another Carers Choir in Hampshire covering Fleet, Farnborough & Aldershot. This decision came to us after the most successful year running a brand new carers choir in Wokingham, so this felt the most perfect option to build up a sister group and share the Voxy love! We will kick off this awesome project in 2019. Please get in touch if you care for a family member in any of the above locations for more info.
And finally here is the footage from our brilliant ‘Sunshine Concert’ this year, with huge thanks going to Dave Sparrow of Mixed Up Studios Fleet for his time and energy putting it all together for us xx
Fab update from last years shows funds are being put into a new project in Yateley at Hedgecroft with Vivid for the elderly residents to benefit from VoxSkool’s amazing volunteers team, including an array of entertainment, singing classes for health and well-being, physical exercises, music quiz, tea dance and Christmas lunch with VoxChoir performance after – all the residents cheered with happiness as we broke the news we were gifting it to them this year! 🙂
After it’s first full year in action, Yateley VoxChoir has been a huge success with it’s locals, leaded by the talented Marcia Slack!
Now in the coming few months VoxChoirs will be reaching out to new communities to jump aboard this fantastic source of inspiration for all lovers of music & socializing and being a part of something wonderful.
We all took part in the very exciting 7th VoxSkool Show on October 1st this year, with just so much talent and energy oozing from each performer whether soloist or part of a VoxChoir and then the people who made everything run like clock-work behind the scenes, from the tech team through to the raffle and tea/cake offerings – this just shows how when communities come together through the medium of music and for a good cause, what brilliant stuff can take place.
This year VoxSkool raised £665.00 which will go to a brand new project in 2018 for Yateley Community people in need – watch this space for updates soon!
