Bra-vissima Ladies Choir in Concert

Friends of St Laurence are presenting an evening concert by Bra-vissima ladies choir, here's what they have to say:

"We have been very lucky to have Bra-vissima Ladies Choir volunteer to support our work. Bra-vissima were founded in 2007 and are Brentwood based. They have a broad repertoire including classical works, songs from the shows and modern popular music. They have performed in Chelmsford Cathedral and at the Essex Festival Choral Concert.

We are very excited about this concert as Bra-vissima will be the first ladies choir we have hosted and are sure they will give their male counterparts a good run for their money. This means we shall all have a smashing evenings entertainment."

The concert will be held on Saturday 16th March 2013 at 7.30pm (doors open at 7.00pm) in the Priory Church of St Laurence, Church Street, Blackmore CM4 0RN. Tickets: £10 from 01277 823959
