Broads Vocal Harmony

BROADS VOCAL HARMONY

was the umbrella name that I used in the past for all of our choirs singing together.

The name lives on at our YouTube channel.

And you can scroll down this page to hear some of our performances.


FUNDRAISING AND FESTIVALS

Broads Vocal Harmony's performing debut was on Saturday 16th June 2012, when we helped Anna Mudeka launch her Mudeka Foundation Charity on Hay Hill in Norwich.

We raised over £200 for Save the Children by busking in Norwich city centre, and in September 2012 we took part in the Salhouse Church Singathon.

On Saturday 20th July 2013 our busking at St Stephen’s Church, Norwich, raised £307.86 for Emma's charity fund (see below).

On Sunday 22nd June 2014, in glorious sunshine, we took part in the Truly Local Festival at How Hill. And on Sunday 24th August 2014 we performed in the Playhouse at Trunchonbury Festival.

Thank you to everyone who came and cheered us on!

EMMA'S CHARITY FUND

Thank you, too, to everybody who supported our fund-raising efforts towards equipment and research into treatment for patients with oesophageal cancer, through the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust Charitable Fund (registered charity number 1048170). This was the project of one of our singers, Emma Bussey, who was treated for oesophageal cancer. There’s more information about this at www.virginmoneygiving.com/PeterBussey2.

Scunsulata's concert at St Lawrence's Centre, South Walsham on Sunday 30th June 2013 raised a total of £876, and another £521.74 at the Octagon Chapel, Norwich on Friday 7th Marth 2014. Broads Vocal Harmony's four-hour busking stint in Norwich on Saturday 20th July 2013 raised £307.86. Global Harmony raised nearly £300 at their concert at South Walsham on 19th July 2014. Thank you to everyone who made all this fund-raising possible!

VOCAL CHORDS
From small beginnings in August 2005, Vocal Chords Choir (based at East Ruston) enjoyed almost eight years of singing. Our performances included two concerts at St Lawrence's Centre, South Walsham; three weddings; Norfolk's very own rock festival, Trunchonbury (2009); and - in 2011, with Trinity Broads Singers - Anna Mudeka's Southburgh Festival.

"Thank you for a wonderful concert. We hope you will visit us again." Christopher Rackham, St Lawrence's Trust.

Our last performance was with Broads Vocal Harmony, busking in Norwich on 20th July 2013.
