A PITCH-PERFECT concert oozing with angelic vocals and interlocking harmonies took place last weekend at Gosfield’s St Catherine’s Church to raise money for a new memorial project.

The Hedingham Singers, a choir of voices first founded in 1984 under a different name, performed soaring renditions of tracks featured in both classic movies and some of the West-End’s most decorated musicals.

Songs from hit films and stage plays such as Oliver, My Fair Lady and the Phantom of the Opera reverberated off of the building’s ancient walls as the afternoon event’s entertainment raised more than £800 for the Gosfield War Memorial Project.

Delicious bowls of strawberries and cream were also served at the event – the rich flavours complimenting the equally as high-end performances.

Kate Sale, one of the organisers of the Gosfield War Memorial Project, said: “It was a beautiful and enjoyable afternoon of summer entertainment with good food and company.

“We want to say thank you to all who came along to support the event and to The Hedingham Singers and everyone who helped in any way.”

Chairman of The Hedingham Singers, Bob Lilley, who says the singers relished the opportunity to perform for the community, was glad to see the talented group’s show impressed the audience and help the cause.

He said: “The Hedingham Singers were particularly pleased to be asked to partake as one of the very worthy fund-raising schemes that have been planned by the Gosfield War Memorial Committee.

“A concert of music, old and new, from the silver screen. was presented to a full house at St Catherine’s and we were very pleased to see that they enjoyed the programme as much as we did in singing it.

“I would endorse a comment from our musical conductor, Thomas Duchan, in saying how wonderful it was to share our music with the community.”
