Living Advent Calendar Day 7 – Rock Choir Rock at Leander

Last night Santa greeted guests at the Leander Club and they were invited to have a glass of Pimms and a mince pie before the door was opened on Day 6 of the Living Advent Calendar.

Henley Rock Choir led by Lucy Hewes gave a real upbeat and rocky performance, opening with ‘Let it Snow’ followed by ‘Have Yourself a Merry White Christmas’, ‘Last Christmas’ and a finale when they got the audience really clapping and singing along to ‘All I Want for Christmas’.  For the first time at the Living Advent Calendar last night the audience asked for an encore which the choir were delighted to perform ‘You’re the Voice.’

Lucy said, “Christmas definitely came early for Henley Rock Choir this year as we started learning these songs in October, we even had a Christmas jumper week when we started learning the Wham song.”
The Henley Rock Choir were the first performance when the Living Advent Calendar was launched in 2011.

The evening was sponsored by Leander and Brakspears and the raffle prizes included a £50 voucher to spend in the Henley Regatta shop and a three course meal for two at Leander including wine.

Come along tonight to Phyllis Court at 6.15pm to see the next special performance of this fantastic community initiative.
