A Trowbridge based choir is appearing in concert in St Nicholas Church in Winsley on Saturday 7th October at 7.30pm to raise funds for Dorothy House Hospice. The Philomel Singers, a group of female voice singers who raise money solely for charity, are presenting “A Celebration Concert” with all the profits raised being donated to Dorothy House Hospice who also provide care and support in the home.       

The choir will perform a wide-ranging programme of songs, from traditional to modern, designed to appeal to everyone and the concert will feature four solo organ works given by Stephen Cooke who is also the choir's accompanist.

The evening will be particularly poignant for members of the choir as it is given in celebration of one of their founder members, Carole Rowe, a gifted and much missed alto singer. Nurses from Dorothy House cared for Carole earlier this year during her final weeks at home. (Carole is second right in the photo taken at a previous fund-raising concert).

This is a free concert with a retiring collection. Refreshments will be available during the interval.

The Philomel Singers present several concerts every year to raise money for many charities totalling over £35,000 to date.
