Every year a committed group of singers and musicians get together for the annual CLIC Sargent Carol Concert to raise money for young people with cancer. This year the concert is being held at a new exciting venue – The Sage, Gateshead.
The choir, conducted by Dr Malcolm Moffat, is made up of the Newcastle Hospitals Choir, senior choirs and choristers of Kings Priory Academy and New Tyneside Orchestra, and will once again be joined by The Northern Doctors Chorus and Highfield Middle School Choir.
Taking part for the first time this year will be St Joseph’s RC School Choir from Hexham and the Cullercoats Primary School Choir.
New this year will be a separate evening concert, not involving the choir, a Musical Jamboree of wind, string and voice including the Ukes of Northumberland, Jazz from Kings Priory and Bede Wind.
Compere for both concerts will be BBC weatherman Paul Mooney.
