Singing together to help MS sufferers.

THE talented aMaSing MS Anglesey and Gwynedd choir will be performing in Llandudno next weekend, along with a variety of supporting groups.

aMaSing was set up in 2013 under the umbrella of the Gwynedd and Mon branch of the MS Society as a pilot project with the idea that people living with or affected by Multiple Sclerosis might find great benefits meeting and singing together. More than two years on, the choir continues to meet weekly, offering fun, friendship and of course singing and singing therapy.

A successful Lottery bid secured funds for a year, but now the group are putting on a fundraising concert in Holy Trinity Church, Trinity Square, Llandudno on November 7. Sara Brown who leads aMaSing said "We are so grateful to Gwynedd and Mon MS society for their continued support but we felt we should do our bit too! Everyone working with the choir is a volunteer, and one of our main expenses is specialised transport costs for those needing it to get to the weekly rehearsals."

"It should be a fun and varied evening" continued Sara "as all the choirs have an eclectic repertoire which includes world music, folk and pop too!" Also appearing on the night are the Shoreline Skiffle band with their quirky nostalgic style of music, the luscious harmonies of the Bangor Community Choir, Coastal Voices is a fun close harmony mixed choir, a cappella songs and hymns with Threnody, and Gwaenysgor Community Choir.

Teas, coffee and cakes will be available in the interval with all proceeds going to support aMaSing.

The grand finale of the concert will see all the choirs joining together into one massed choir (70 plus singers) to sing four songs.

| Doors open 6.30pm, concert starts at 7pm. |TICKETS are priced at PS6 on the door. For more details contact Sara on 07881 463585 or email sarasings@ymail.com
