The St Austin’s Choir from Wakefield (pictured above) will be performing at a concert at to St Joseph’s Catholic Church, Sheringham on Saturday April 7 to raise money for the hungry and homeless.
Paul Henriksen, Director of Music at Our Lady of Refuge, Cromer, said: “The Parish of our Lady and St Joseph, is looking forward to the concert. The choir will perform a wide range of works from composers including Bruckner, Palestrina, Victoria, Mozart, Faure, Rutter, Granger and Handel. We are most fortunate to have St Austin’s choir of 25 members come to sing for us and we thank the Director of Music, Patrick Ganley for agreeing to come.”
There is no charge, but there is a retiring collection for the Society of St Vincent de Paul to enable them to continue supporting the Cromer and District foodbank and the temporarily homeless.
In 2012, the choir sang at St Peter’s Basilica in the Vatican, Rome and the Pantheon in Central Rome. A further tour was undertaken in 2014 when the choir visited Paris singing in Notre Dame and three other magnificent churches. A follow-up tour was made to Rome in 2017, which included singing at Santa Maria Maggiore, St Paul outside the Walls and St Peter’s.
The choir will also be at the Sung Mass in the Cathedral of St John the Baptist, Norwich on Sunday April 8.
