Seats still available for first-ever Great EACH Choir Off

Seats still available for first-ever Great EACH Choir Off

Feb 19, 2018

School choirs from across Suffolk are fine-tuning their performances for competition, with the Great EACH Choir Off now just a week away.

Pupils from Finborough School, St Edmund’s Catholic Primary, St Mary’s C of E Academy, Hardwick Primary and Woolpit Primary Academy will vie to be crowned inaugural winners of the charity contest on Saturday, 24 February,

They will be judged by a specialist panel including identical twin sopranos Naomi and Hannah Moxon, better known as Classical Reflection from TV talent show The Voice.

Excitement is really beginning to build, with an audience of at least 150 set to fill St Edmundsbury Cathedral. Proceeds from the event will go to EACH.

Helen Lyons, a teacher at Finborough, says: “Taking part in this is giving children the opportunity to be part of a choir that helps grow confidence and self-esteem, as well as to be part of an event that raises funds for a great charity locally. The children will associate the joy of singing with that of helping those children more vulnerable than them.”

Natasha Brame says: “There’s a great buzz about this competition as it draws closer and the good news for everyone in and around Bury St Edmunds is that there are still tickets remaining. It’s a stunning venue, and there will be a raffle and cake sale in addition to everything else happening, so why not come along and join us for a great night of entertainment?

Cathedral doors open at 6.30pm, with singing between 7pm and 9pm. Tickets are £10 and available online at until 3pm on Monday, 19 February, or they can be bought on the door.

  • Children like Lucy don’t get the opportunity to go to sleepovers or to their friends for tea, so the interaction she has at the hospice is priceless. Heather, Lucy’s mum
  • The play specialists are excellent and I also get inspiration from the activities they organise. Heather, Lucy’s mum
  • We are also supported by the 24/7 True Colours nurses and it’s so reassuring knowing we can call on them whenever we need support or advice Helen, William’s mum
