Peter­bor­ough Com­mu­nity Gospel Choir, St Mary’s, New Road To­mor­row GOSPEL and West End mu­si­cal clas­sics will be per­formed at a cel­e­bra­tory 10th an­niver­sary con­cert for the Peter­bor­ough Com­mu­nity Gospel Choir.

St Mary’s Church, in New Road, Peter­bor­ough, is host­ing the con­cert at 7pm to­mor­row.

The Peter­bor­ough Com­mu­nity Gospel Choir was founded 10 years ago by its di­rec­tor, Er­rol Bal­lan­tyne, a singer who has been per­form­ing for more than 20 years.

When Er­rol be­gan the choir in 2002, it had just four peo­ple, and has now grown to 43. The choir now has its base at St Mary’s and prac­tise on Thurs­day evenings.

The choir is mainly made up of Peter­bor­ough peo­ple who have a pas­sion for singing and get a real buzz from each per­for­mance.

Over the years, the choir has sung at wed­dings, con­certs, birth­days, funer­als and var­i­ous events, both re­gion­ally and na­tion­ally.

The choir has also ap­peared on BBC’S Songs of Praise.

Pro­ceeds from to­mor­row’s con­cert will be shared be­tween Shine and the Pap­worth Trust char­i­ties.

Both char­i­ties are grate­ful
