Annual fundraiser a real ‘city mission’

Addington Brass and the Christchurch Youth Choir are in the final rehearsals in preparation for the annual fundraising concert for the Christchurch City Mission. This year the concert will be performed on at the Transitional Cathedral in Latimer Square on Saturday evening at 7.30pm.

City Missioner, Michael Gorman, said the band and choir have been rehearsing for months in preparation for this fundraiser which is programmed to bring a festive feel by the performance of Christmas carols and sacred pieces from the popular ‘O Come all Ye Faithful’, ‘Hark the Herald’, and beautiful ‘O Holy Night’ to the very entertaining ‘Frosty the Snowman’ and many others.
