June 9th

Echo 42 Big Band with Choir

June 23rd Wesley Chapel 7.30pm.


Following the successful Jazz Mass in Ripon Cathedral in 2009 organised by Keith Hawker and featuring music from Duke Ellington’s Sacred Concerts, an extended choir will be repeating some of the items with Big Band Echo 42. This will be part of a concert called “Essentially Ellington” on June 23rd. It is in aid of St Michael’s Hospice and is very much a concert with Keith in mind. As well as organising the service in Ripon, he both sang in St Robert’s Choir and played in Echo 42. The concert will be a very fitting tribute to remember his talents and enthusiasm as well as a contribution to a very worthy cause. Tickets are £8 available at church from Sarah or Kevin Paynes (872651) or Anita Hawker (871283)


Choir at Kirk Hammerton

The choir will be singing Choral Evensong at St John the Baptist Church Kirk Hammerton on Sunday 9th June at 6.30pm.
