Chordiality Raise The Roof and Calling All Gardeners!

June has proved a productive month for St Michael and All Angels as we have held 2 successful fundraising events. Last week we reviewed the 1960s themed ‘Brolly Folly’ held 18-19 June, the second event this month was a concert performed by Chordiality, a Bradford based choir, on the 25th.
David Root, who is the accompanist for ‘Chordiality’ is also the organist at Haworth Church and was the one who originally suggested that the choir perform in aid of the restoration fund. The choir have performed a number of fundraising concerts in the past and are well known in the Bradford Area.
The choir performed a variety of music ranging from the 15th century to more up to date pieces such as Snow Patrol. This not only proved the choirs range but also provided an evening’s entertainment with something for everybody. The audience greatly enjoyed the evening, pleased once again to have the rafters of the building ringing. It was greatly acknowledge that anybody who didn’t attend this performance had really “missed a treat”.
If you would like to attend a Chordiality concert in the future then their 2011 dates are as follows:

Saturday 1st October 7.30 – Methodist Church, Silsden

Saturday 8th October 7.30 – Blackley Heath Baptist Church, Elland

Sunday 18th December 3pm – Candlelit Christmas Concert. First Martyrs church, Heights Lane, Bradford, BD9 4RX

Future events being held by St Michael and All Angels include a concert by the award winning Steeton Male Voice Choir. This choir have generously donated their time to perform for us on Saturday the 30th of July. The concert will begin at 7.30pm and tickets will cost £7.00. This is an ideal opportunity to have a summers evening of entertainment and support a worthy local cause.

Another way you can help the church at the moment is donating to our produce collection towards our Winter Fair. We are looking for donations of surplus fruit and vegetables from people’s gardens to make into Jams, Jellies, Chutney and Pickles. We are also collecting donations of jars and sugar in order to help us make lots of yummy preserves to sell at our winter fair later in the year. If you would like to make a donation or help in anyway then don’t hesitate to get in contact with us either through our website or by email
