A choir will use new staging for the first time after a year of fundraising.

Having raised enough money to replace their worn out staging, Pakefield Singers will be atop new tiered risers for their concert at St Edmund’s Church in Southwold on Saturday, July 7.

Chairman Christine Mason said: “We are extremely grateful to everyone who has supported the choir and enabled us to raise the money we needed. The new portable staging will make a real difference as we can now take a wider range of music to even more venues.”

Tomorrow’s concert, starting at 7.30pm, will see the choir give a rendition of Rossini’s Petite messe solennelle, conducted by director and vocal coach, Vetta Wise. They will be joined by soloists Elizabeth Willmott, Tabitha Reynolds, Djinh Raoul Kamei and Dhilan Gnanadura.

Tickets cost £12 and under 16s go free. They are available online, on the door, or in advance from St Edmund’s Hall, Southwold Arts Centre and Take Note Music in Lowestoft.
