The weather may have been cold, but there was a very warm atmosphere in The Spire Church when talented members of Farnham Youth Choir put on a free teatime concert (plus tea and cake) to raise money for their attendance at The World Choir Games in Auckland, New Zealand, in July next year.  

The varied programme featured small vocal groups performing well-known songs by ABBA and Billy Joel, alongside solo performances by the singers, ranging from Mendelssohn to the Lithuanian song Paukščiai and even a new composition, written and performed by a choir member. 

Also included were instrumental pieces such as Debussy’s lovely Clair de lune played by FYC accompanist Matthew Rickard. 

The concert was well supported and raised £1,200, taking the choir one step closer to their goal.
