Jamie's Charity Project raises over £17,000!
Dancing Day - a charity project for Christmas 2016 was the brainchild of RCS Musical Director Jamie W. Hall. He composed a brand new Christmas carol and made it available for free and without any limitations to choirs everywhere who used their performances to support the amazing work of Macmillan Cancer Support. There have been 100+ performances of the carol in the UK and abroad raising a stunning total of £17,000.
Sleep, My Jesu will remain free to anyone who wants to use it to support Macmillan in perpetuity. It is an accessible and beautiful Christmas lullaby for unaccompanied SATB and is available for SSAA or in transposition for ATBarB, as well as in a version for unison voices with piano or organ accompaniment.

Choir Tour 2015 - Krakow - Building Bridges
In October 2015 some of the choir travelled to the beautiful city of Krakow in Poland to participate in the 'Building Bridges' project instigated by Dutch composer Paul van Gulick with whom we have collaborated on several occasions in the past. The project brought together two Polish choirs, the Krakow Agricultural University choir, the male voice Agricola choir, a Dutch choir, the South Netherlands Chamber choir and ourselves.

Come and Sing 2016 - a whopping £8,200 has been donated to the HIOWAA!
Well done to everyone who took part in the ‘Come and Sing The Armed Man’ on 16th April at Romsey Abbey, from the 340 singers and orchestra to the many non-performers who helped behind the scenes in so many different ways to make the day a success. The event was staged to raise money for the Hampshire and Isle of Wight Air Ambulance and the fantastic news is that the proceeds of the day have exceeded our wildest dreams.
