This is our fifth annual CLIC for Christmas concert raising funds for CLIC Sargent. Once again, we will be hosting a celebration of Christmas in the beautiful Exeter Cathedral and will be joined by one of the winners of our Devon Schools Choir Competition, Exmouth Community College. In addition we are again thrilled to be welcoming the CLIC Sargent singers, a group of exceptionally talented young people who have all benefitted from the support of CLIC Sargent and will be sharing their stories with us as well as their beautiful music.
Isn't it fantastic that there are a number of singing groups in and around the Exeter area?
Is it any wonder that more people access a local singing group when singing is part of our popular tv culture eg., The X Factor, The Eurovision Song Contest, The Voice, Pop Idol, Fame Academy, Popstars, Over the Rainbow, Last Choir Standing, Any Dream Will Do, How Do You Solve a Problem Like Maria?, All Together Now ... to name but a few.
