MORE than 100 singers helped raise £1,300 for a church.

The vo­cal­ists came to­gether for a Come and Sing event at St Michael’s Church in Mar­ket Place, pic­tured.

The per­for­mance of Mozart’s Re­quiem was di­rected by Ian Ch­esworth, well-known for his ap­pear­ances on Gareth Malone’s The Choir on BBC2.

It was or­gan­ised by King Ed­ward Mu­si­cal So­ci­ety of Mac­cles­field (KEMS).

It’s choir was joined by vis­it­ing singers from Shrews­bury and Lan­cashire.

The singers were ac­com­pa­nied by KEMS and you and Ian and the church folk and set­ting made for a wel­com­ing en­vi­ron­ment.”

Mean­while Mike Muston from Bolling­ton said: “I thought the event was ter­rific and thor­oughly en­joyed the day. Mozart’s Re­quiem is a piece that many peo­ple al­ready knew and I think this re­ally con­trib­uted to the suc­cess of the day.”
