Dear <<Greeting>>

In April a packed St Mary's Church heard four talented young soloists at the start of their careers join with the EAC to give an uplifting performance of Handel's Messiah. The evening was much enjoyed by all who came as shown by comments received: "I thought the whole performance was wonderful and totally professional, fed my soul and soothed my spirit"; "Truly wonderful ...I felt shimmers and vibrations going right through me".
At a reception for Friends and Sponsors before the concert, Patrick McIntosh of our new corporate sponsors, KMG, ceremonially presented a 'big' cheque to Leslie Olive, in the presence of the Mayor of Reigate, Councillor Dorothy Ross-Tomlin. We are most grateful for their support.
Festival of English Music
The English Arts Chorale are excited to be part of the 2019 Festival of English Music at Dorchester Abbey in Oxfordshire. At the concert, on Saturday 25th May at 7pm, we will be performing Paul Carr's Stabat Mater and other pieces from our recently-released 'Radiance' CD.
Tickets are available from the Festival website.
Tokyo or Bust!

Patrick McIntosh, the "M" in KMG (our corporate sponsor), has started his epic cycle ride to Tokyo (only 7,557 miles!), raising awareness and funds for cancer research and St Catherine's Hospice, both causes close to his heart as a triple cancer survivor.

You can see his route and track his progress here, and make a donation towards his £250,000 target here  

Summer Concert
The season finishes with a short concert 'Sprig of Thyme', based around John Rutter's arrangement of folk songs. For this concert we are back at St Mary's, Reigate, on Saturday July 13th, starting at 4pm. After the concert there will be cake and prosecco - do come and celebrate with us. Tickets will be available shortly at and through choir members.

We hope to see you at one of our concerts soon.
