More news, no ads


After a two-year pandemic absence, violinist Helen Page, pianist Oliver Williams and choir Harmony return in their popular annual summer concert, at 3pm on Sunday (June 26) at St George’s Church, Andover Rd.

Harmony are an unauditioned a capella choir who sing for charity in the Newbury area.

Helen’s selection includes favourites by Brahms and Elgar and the evergreen Over the Rainbow.

Harmony’s wide-ranging programme includes a ‘European’ section, and as part of this the choir are proud to be performing the Ukrainian national anthem, and hope to have a Ukrainian guest helping them to do it justice.

The first half ends with the rousing opening of Vivaldi’s Gloria, after which both performers and audience will be ready for the interval, with the usual Pimm's and strawberries .

The equally varied second half also ends in exuberant fashion. In this royal jubilee year there can be no more appropriate finale than God Save The Queen, sung by all, hopefully in a sea of red, white and blue, as the audience wave the Union flags provided.
