Concerted effort

Cambridge people! A friend of mine is organising a concert this Friday in aid of the Leukaemia Research Foundation. I'm intending to go, and I'd love some other people to come with me.

Who?Cambridge Voices, a 16-strong chamber choir with a passion for sensual music, a love of liturgical ceremony, a keen eye for choreographic musical illumination, a devotion to French cuisine and an unconventional sense of theatre. For this special concert a reduced choir of eight voices, conducted by Ian De Massini, will present a dramatic, mixed, multi-part programme, ranging from sacred motets to secular madrigals and close harmony.
Where?St. Paul's Church, Hills Road, Cambridge. [Map]
When?Friday 30th June, Doors 7:30-10:30pm, music 8:00-10:00pm.
Go on then... how much?Pew Seats, £6
Table for 6, £50 (includes 1 bottle of wine and snacks).
I'm aiming to get together a table of 6.
Sounds great! How do I get tickets?
If you want to make up a table with me, please comment here or email me before Wednesday evening.

Otherwise, you can buy tickets from Miller's Music shop / Ken Stevens Instruments, Sussex Street, Cambridge. To avoid disappointment, pre-booking is recommended.

Full details of the concert are on the Raise1000 website.

I went to a previous event in this series, a concert given by the Silicon Edge Big Band, and it was great fun -- an evening of toe-tapping music, food, wine, and generally a really good atmosphere. I suspect this concert will be a slightly quieter affair, but the music promises to be absolutely fantastic. So let me know if you want to come along!
