Wellbeing Choir spreads Christmas cheer

The BLG Mind Wellbeing Choir

BLG Mind’s new Wellbeing Choir helped bring joy and the Christmas spirit to a damp and dreary December afternoon when they participated in a magical Winter Sparkle concert.

The recently formed Wellbeing Choir, part of Bromley Recovery College, joined forces with Caterham Community Choir to perform a number of celebratory songs in the magnificent surroundings of St John the Evangelist church in Upper Norwood on 11 December.

The five choirs perform together in front of the five gothic arches of St John the Evangelist’s chancel.

Also performing in front of the capacity crowd were the Carers Support Centre Choir, the Hive Community Choir and St Christopher’s Community Choir.

The concert was arranged and directed by local singer and musician Katie Rose, assisted by fellow singer and musician, Sarah Fisher.

Katie and Sarah have been working with the Wellbeing Choir since its launch in September this year.

Two members of the Wellbeing Choir sang solos.

Speaking after the concert, Katie said: “I’m so happy with how it went. What an amazing community event, and the BLG Mind choir performed beautifully, especially considering they only recently formed.”

Jenny, a member of the Wellbeing Choir, said: “It’s been a wonderful day. We’ve been here since 11am, but it was worth it. I think the whole choir loved the experience.”
