An Evening of Song and Entertainment

Christiane Kobus has invited MTJAC to sing at a fundraising evening of entertainment at St John Fisher RC Church in North Harrow

St John Fisher Poster.jpg

Please arrive at St John Fisher Church at 6:00pm for warm-up, focaus and quick rehearsal.
There will be light refreshments in the interval.

John Sanger has another gig, so we will be missing his accompaniment for the singing; we will be relying solely on backing tracks, as we always have done in the past.

In addition to our choir songs, there will be a couple of solo performances:

  • Priti Maroo - Can't Help Falling In Love with You (Elvis)

  • Miguel Leith - Find Your Grail

  • Me - My Funny Valentine

  • Mumbi Sylvia -  Energiser (Macarena)

I'll have a set list with me, so we know what's going to be what!

Dress Code: All black, please.  I shall bring the purple scarves.
See below for directions and transport.

See you at St John Fisher Church Hall

Visit to MTJAC by Toni Castells-Delgado - Composer and Academic

Toni Castells is a composer and lecturer at Imperial College.  He is proposing to compose a piece of music for orchestra and choir, to be performed later this year in London, with a professional orchestra.  He would like to work with More Than Just A Choir.  As someone who has suffered from depression, he is very interested in taking up a PhD around music and mental health.

Toni will be visiting the choir on Tuesday 1st May to introduce himself, see what we are doing and how best he can compose music specifically for us.

Here is an example of his work
