*** STOP PRESS ***

This year, we are sadly unable to put on our usual festive celebration of Christmas carols, readings and songs. We have been unable to meet in person since lockdown began in March, and Covid restrictions still in place mean that a live event would be impractical.

However, the choir has been meeting online throughout the year, and we are delighted that we will be producing our first ever virtual concert. We have been recording our favourite carols and Christmas songs, and we hope that our many loyal supporters, as well as friends and family from around the world, will join us from December 19th to listen in, and even sing along at home!

In a year when many performers have seen their livelihoods severely reduced, we are supporting Help Musicians, a charity which supports professional musicians through difficult times. If you enjoy our concert please consider making a donation to our chosen Christmas Charity (Help Musicians – Coronavirus Financial Hardship Fund) via this link:  www.justgiving.com/fundraising/enfieldchoralsociety

The concert premieres on YouTube at 7:30pm on December 19th – click here to view.
