The choir, which is drawn from members of health and social care organisations throughout the Midlands, sang to a packed out Birmingham Town Hall for two performances. 

This year the matinee performance was performed in the presence of the Right Worshipful Mayor of Walsall Councillor Angela Underhill and Consort John Underhill.

The choir was supported by a superb list of special guests including; violinist Jody Smith, organist Asako Onishi and the Dodderhill Girls School Chamber Choir.

The choir was conducted by James Llewelyn Jones, accompanied by Melissa Morris and once again the 10-piece ensemble Gemini Brass, which kindly donated its fee to the CLIC Sargent.

All profits from the sale of tickets were donated to CLIC Sargent as was the retiring collection which totalled over £2,600.

Phenomenal support

CLIC Sargent Fundraising Manager Anna Finnegan said: “The support that the Midlands Hospitals’ Choir has shown for CLIC Sargent over the last 34 years is phenomenal and we are very grateful to them.

"I very much enjoyed the concert and thought the performance of Ose Shalom with Jody Smith on the violin was just sensational.”
