Good music for a good cause
Aliquando Chamber Choir is based in Henley-on-Thames and grew out of like-minded musicians wanting to sing good music for a very good cause ie for local charities to benefit from the profit of our concerts, whilst giving our local community the chance to hear the smaller choral works both from the baroque period and more contemporary compositions.
Since our inception in 2009 we have raised over £50,000 for charities such as Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal, Jacaranda Trust, RNLI, Henley Music School, NOMAD, Chiltern Centre, CAP Henley Debt Centre, Headway, Parkinsons and Riding for the Disabled (RAD) through the wonderful and generous community of concert goers and sponsorship from local businesses.
We came out of the barren Covid years with fresh energy and our first concert singing to a live audience was sold out. In November of that year we performed the concert 'Riches Revealed' to a suitably distanced audience and still made a profit for NOMAD. Last year we were back on track raising £4,650 for the newly formed Henley Debt Centre, which is run by Christians Against Poverty (CAP).
Aliquando Chamber Choir’s concert this year is in aid of the 'Lowland Rescue Oxfordshire',
entitled 'THIS SHINING NIGHT' it follows the progress of the biblical story from Angel Gabriel’s appearance and message to Mary (Buxtehude's Magnificat) The Shining Star which led the Shepherds and the three Kings to Bethlehem - (Schutz's The Christmas Story) Praetorius' - In Dulci Jubilo and Sweelinck's 'Hodie Christus Natus est' and Britten's most lovely 'Hymn to the Virgin'. Soloists - Tenor Alex Haig - Bass Baritone, Daniel Tate. With String Ensemble led by Amanda Shepherd and Continuo, Ian Westley, Conductor, Anne Evans.
Aliquando Choir is a not-for-profit organisation and all concert proceeds will go to Lowland Rescue Oxfordshire
