Ciren Makes Music for Ukraine – Cirencester Baptist Church – Sat 8th Oct 19:30

Rob Grace, MC

I’m very much looking forward to my role as MC for this event.  After a year of hosting comedy gigs, and more recently the stages at the fantastic Phoenix Festival, it’s wonderful to be asked to head up a concert promoting such a good cause.

This will be a great night of music and entertainment and I am so pleased to be able to play a small part in introducing some top Cirencester talent.

The community spirit in Cirencester has always been strong and to extend that spirit to Ukraine is something very special.  I look forward to seeing you there.

Cirencester Male Voice Choir

Cirencester Male Voice Choir are now formally a Registered Charity – with the aim of supporting Charities! And having fun singing together, of course.  We recently took part in the world’s largest Male Choral Festival and were delighted by the reception.

A little over 30 strong with a professional Music Team under our Director, James Willshire and Accompanist Louise Matley, we sing to raise money for local causes or national organisations that work with the people of Cirencester and its surroundings.

And singing in a group has so many positive health impacts, so we welcome new members who want to improve their mental and spiritual wellbeing, or just meet new friends.

We are absolutely delighted to perform for this excellent cause this evening, our thanks to the organisers.

Corinium Players

The Corinium Players are looking forward to performing at this important event to help raise much needed money for the ‘Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal’

They will be performing a selection of Latin and Easy listening pieces on the warm sounds of the classical guitar.
