Choir in fine voice for good cause

Evesham Editorial 26th Jun, 2014 Updated: 20th Oct, 2016

A POPULAR Evesham based choir for people who like to sing unaccompanied four part harmony songs will be taking to the stage for a special concert.

Musyck Anon will be making music at St Lawrence’s Church next Saturday (July 5) for a friendly evening of songs celebrating six centuries of music.

The event gives the choir the opportunity to support a charity founded by one of their members.

Liz McCartney founded United Kingdom Primary Immune-deficiency Patient Support (UKPIPS) in 2012.

It is an organisation which supports people living with Primary Antibody Deficiency (PAD) and other Primary Immune

Deficiencies (PID).

Because of a lack of or a compromised immune system people living with the condition are often ill and spend weeks at a time in hospital.

Liz is unable to sing with the choir at the moment because she has been unwell for most of this year. A retiring collection will be held and any money donated will be divided between UKPIPS and the Churches Conservation Trust, who are responsible for

the upkeep of St Lawrence’s Church.

Musyck Anon have often used their voices to raise money for various charities through the years such as the Acquired Brain Injury Unit in Evesham, the Mayor of Evesham’s Charity Appeal and the restoration project at the Unitarian Chapel.

They have also raised money for charities that members of the choir have personal connections with, such as The MS Society and Leukaemia Research.

The concert takes place on July 5, from 4pm and entry to the concert is free and everyone is welcome.
