Harleston Singers in London
Members of Harleston's singing group 'Too Many Cooks' were in London on Sunday 15 September.
They where they joined other groups from around the country to create a choir of some 500 people. This was for the annual 'Sing for Water' performance, which is organised to raise money and awareness of WaterAid, who have donated over £1 million to provide clean water, decent toilets and good hygiene throughout the world.
The concert was held outside County Hall on the South banks of the river Thames with a mixture of traditional and specially written music. There was beautiful harmony, wonderful weather and a very appreciative audience. Combined with the worthy cause of WaterAid, it all made for a wonderful Sunday afternoon.
Nicky Stainton of 'Too Many Cooks' said, "It was very exhilarating to be part of a concert with some 500 plus singers from 48 different choirs from across England, Wales and Ireland. I think we were the only three singers from Norfolk! The atmosphere was fntastic and the project raised over £30,000 for WaterAid projects in Malawi".
