Story

In 2017, Hatfield College Chapel Choir is planning its most ambitious tour to date, a ten-day tour of Canada and the USA. The choir will perform in many venues, including All Saints Cathedral, Halifax, All Saints Cathedral, Albany, and St James Cathedral, Toronto, ON.

In aid of our tour fund, over the course of 30 hours on the 18th and 19th November, the Choir will be hosting a Hymnathon, where we will be singing through the entire New English Hymnal in our own college Chapel. The event will begin at 7pm on Friday 18th November, and will finish around midnight on Sunday 20th November.

In order to make this event a success we need your help! Maybe you would like to sponsor your favourite hymn for just £10, or sponsor three for the price of two! Equally, you are cordially invited to join us and sing whenever you like during course of the event for just £3. Or you are just as welcome to make a separate donation; any amount would be very welcome!

You will be able to follow the choir's progress during the event on their Facebook page (www.facebook.com/hatfieldcollegechapelchoir).

Later on in the term, the choir will be hosting a Christmas Concert on the 4th December at 8.00pm in the College Dining Hall, also in aid of the tour fund. All are very welcome to come and hear the choir sing some Christmas favourite, accompanied by a harpist and a string orchestra. Tickets (£15/10) will be available from www.musicdurham.org/event/hatfieldchristmasconcert/

We hope you will be able to support us in this venture!

For more information, please contact the Director of Music, Jonny Allsopp, at jonathan.allsopp@durham.ac.uk
