Sing! Choirs are preparing for their next big concert – this time in Ely.
They will return to the Bishop's Garden on Sunday July 7 as part of the Isle of Ely Arts Festival.
Sing! Choirs continue to raise money for local good causes that included them being conducted by Call the Midwife star Cliff Parisi. That event turned into an amazing way to raise funds for the Arthur Rank Hospice Charity.
Kathryn Rowland, MD for Sing! Choirs said: "We were delighted to be singing for the StarShine Night Walk supporting Arthur Rank Hospice Charity and then had the idea even after a day full of rehearsals and performance that we could do the walk too.
"So a team of us did the walk, and I am delighted to say that we raised £1415.54, which of course will all go to Arthur Rank Hospice Charity."

She added: "This also means our overall fundraising total to date now stands at £26,058, and we have been delighted to work with many local charities to make this happen.
"A choir makes a real community, and I think this illustrates what a positive community it is."
