We are delighted to announce that we have handed over a cheque for £1,406.77 to the Andover Crisis & Support Centre following our Christmas fundraising activities.The cheque was received by Elaine Oates, Senior

funding. The centre

choose a good local charity for our various Christmas activities. Our main concert at St Mary's Church saw the audience responding
very positively, with their ticket money and the retiring collection going to
the charity. We also sang at Sainsbury's and several residential homes, which all contributed to the final amount.

The Harmonium Singers
The group was formed originally in 1971 with friends getting together to sing Christmas carols to the accompaniment of an antique portable harmonium. The instrument itself has long been left behind but the group has gone from strength to strength and established itself as a successful local chamber choir.
Often singing without accompaniment, the Harmonium Singers specialise in smaller-scale choral repertoire from the 16th century to the present day, both sacred and secular. Thoughtful sequences of words and music with a particular theme or spiritual dimension have become a feature of programmes. The group often performs for local community or charity events in and around Andover.
