The York Civic Youth Choir have once again been invited by St Leonard’s Hospice to perform for them at one of their fundraising events. “Lights on the Lake” in Rowntree Park will take place on Wednesday 20th March at 6.30pm. This is a new event for 2019, there will be a short service (similar to “Light up a Life” at Christmas) followed by lanterns being floated on the Lake in Rowntree Park.
The plan is to light the way to the lake with a lantern procession to the lake and the choir have been invited to lead the procession with lanterns and then sing some songs before lanterns are floated. We would love for as many of the members of the choir old and new to be involved with this as it promises to be a really magical event.
We will be having ONE rehearsal only on Saturday 16th March from 10am-3:30pm at St Aelred’s School, including an informal performance for parents and family at 3:15pm. Please sign up below to take part.
