About

Epiphany Concert in aid of Cancer Research UK

The Cambridge Fundraising Choir will perform Epiphany Carols in the beautiful church of St James the Greater - the proceeds of this concert will go towards Cancer Research UK's Brain Tumour Research.

The programme will include works by Howells, Rutter and Tavener, and there will be a 20 minute interval with refreshments.

The choir is composed of current and former choral scholars at Cambridge University who study a wide range of subjects. Within their respective college choirs, they have been fortunate to be a part of professional CD recordings and tour all over the world, with trips to Australia, America, Hong Kong, Canada and Germany. They gave their first concerts in Rutland and Leicestershire in January 2017, and in the last year they have performed in Magdalen College, Oxford, St Cross, Winchester and Trinity College, Cambridge. They have raised over £6000 for Cancer Research UK's Brain Tumour Research in the last year, and they aim to raise another £2000 in January 2018.

They would like to raise money to help support the invaluable work of Cancer Research UK, and in particular their contribution towards the treatment of brain tumours. Having witnessed the results of their excellent research first-hand, as in the last year two people close to members of the choir have undergone treatment for brain tumours: a 22-year-old fellow student from Trinity College, Cambridge and a godmother to a member of the group.

Tickets cost £10 (free for children) and can be obtained through the website.
