The Filtones Choir's Greatest Fundraising Effort in 30 years!February 22nd, 2013
The Filtones Choir has celebrated its 30th Anniversary Year by raising the grand sum of £2,800 for charities from three concerts which took place in 2012. Those who have benefited have been Eden Grove Methodist Church (where the choir rehearses); the Alzheimers Society for its Singing for the Brain activities; Shine (a charity supporting people with Spina Bifida); and Heartful Dodgers (a Southmead and Frenchay Hospitals charity).
Every year the Choir aims to raise money for charity with its summer concert, which in 2013 will take place at Eden Grove Methodist Church on Saturday 29 June. The charity is normally chosen by the choir from suggestions raised by its members and voted for by them. Each year the members like to support a different charity and prefer it to be local to Bristol and the surrounding area. If anyone reading this would like to nominate a charity for 2013, the choir will be pleased to consider it, and will be making its final choice before the end of March. Submissions can be made via e mail to [email protected] or by telephoning 0117 9690654 by the end of February please.
This four part harmony choir, whose repertoire includes music to please all tastes from the Beatles to Bach, meets every Wednesday afternoon from 1.45pm. to 3.45pm at Eden Grove Methodist Church, Eden Grove, Horfield. They actively seek new members who can sing alto, tenor and bass (sorry sopranos, but we have a waiting list at the moment). Ability to read music is an advantage but not necessary, as learning CDs can be supplied. Please speak initially to the Musical Director, Mike Watson, (Tel 0117 9083778)if you are interested in joining.Tags: Alzheimers Society, Ashley Down, Bishopston, Bishopston Matters, Bristol, choir, concert, Eden Grove Methodist Church, Filton, Filtones, Filtones Choir, Frenchay, Heartful Dodgers, Horfield, Hospitals, Shine, Singing for the Brain, Southmead, Spina Bifida, St Andrews, voice Back to news
