‘Concert For Africa 2013 – Schools United’

September 9, 2013 Leave a comment

Our now traditional ‘Concert for Africa’ took place in July 2013 At Newman University. There were choirs, brass ensembles, guitar soloists a-plenty and this year we joined forces with Tenterfields Primary School in Halesowen. A fantastic evening was had by all and the money raised will be used to support our link schools in the Gambia. You can listen to all of our performances by visiting our Youtube channel at http://www.youtube.com/user/kitwell

February 24, 2013 Leave a comment

As part of our continued support for Makumbaya Lower Basic School in the Gambia, West Africa, the Kitwell choir held their second ‘Concert for Africa’ at Newman University College Chapel. There was superb singing, a brilliant brass ensemble (courtesy of our brass teacher Mr. Douglas) and a star soloist guitar player. We also held a raffle and thanks must go to all parties who donated prizes. Special thanks must go to Mark Main of Clark IT who regularly supports us in raffle related events. All of the money raised on this evening will go towards Kitwell’s quest to complete the building of a library in Makumbaya Lower Basic School.
