Members of the Newcombe singers participated at several Remembrance Day events for the 100th anniversary of the end of WWI.

In December 2016, we celebrated the winter season with a Ceremony of Carols concert featuring works by Britten, Carrillo, Morales, Mozart, Clérambault, Lightfoot, Torme, Mioduszewskiego, and others. We were joined by guest Harpist Josh Layne.
The concert was a smashing success!
