BHGS Choir sings virtually in the Willow Foundation Carol Concert 2020
Every year, our Bishop’s Choir takes great pride in performing in The Willow Foundation Christmas Carol Concert, held in St Albans’ Cathedral with the prestigious Herts Chorus and many other artists. In 2020 however, the Coronavirus pandemic forced the charity to suspend the Special Days that it offers to seriously ill 16 to 40 year old adults. Its legendary concert couldn’t take place either. Instead, an online concert replaced it on 4th December.
An audience of over 700 people still registered to watch the event. Due to the virtual nature of the concert, a professionally pre-recorded soundtrack of our choir in the school hall was used. Their voices still sounded heavenly and for those who missed the concert, a YouTube link is available until the end of December.
Although there was no fee for the online concert, The Willow Foundation raised just over £9,000 and if you would like to support the future of Willow Foundation’s Special Days, you can still make a donation via their website. http://www.willowfoundation.org.uk/donate
Congratulations to our talented pupils and to Ms Punchard for bringing the best out of them. Thank you for warming our hearts with Christmas cheer and the hearts of seriously ill young adults who will hopefully soon be able to enjoy Willows Special Days again.
