NEXT OXSHOTT REHEARSAL . . .
. . Wednesday, January 26th 7.55pm

LHMF Messiah . . .
. . the Spring performance of Handel's Messiah, in the Dorking Halls, RH4 1SG, was scheduled for Sunday March 13th. This has now been postponed to June 19th. For the latest information, visit the LHMF website.



Our next concert . . .
. . was our 2021 Christmas concert, in St Andrew's Church, Oxshott, on Sunday December 5th. We sang excerpts from Handel's Messiah, and a selection of Christmas music old and new. Unfortunately there was no interval to be enlivened by the customary wine and hot mince pies and sausage rolls. Despite the audience size being limited by Covid-19 precautions, we managed to raise £410 for our Christmas charity, B@titude, a shop in Leatherhead which, according to it's website, "sells second-hand babies (!) and children's clothes"



Our last concert . . .
Magnificat! . . was our 2019 Christmas concert, in St Andrew's Church, Oxshott, KT22 0LE, on Saturday December 14th. We sang J S Bach's Magnificat in D, and a selection of Christmas music old and new, and in the interval there was the usual irresistible allure of wine and hot mince pies and sausage rolls.
Our chosen charity was Elmbridge Community Link.
