Yate Choral Society has raised £1160 for the Great Western Air Ambulance after a concert in St Mary’s Church. 

The event saw the choir stage the world premier of a movement of a new piece of music by a local composer. The piece was from a requiem mass called Thousand Colours of Sunset by Johnathan Crow, the organist and choirmaster at St John’s church in Chipping Sodbury, and a member of the choir. 

The piece was a taster for the premier performance of the whole mass which will be given on 10 March 2018 in St Mary’s Church in Wotton under Edge. 

The Choir’s next concert will be its Christmas carol concert on Tuesday 12 December at 7:30pm in Chipping Sodbury Town Hall.
