The Ukulele group busked in King Street on Saturday 9th December, and collected for Support4Sight. It was freezing cold and it’s hard to play with frozen fingers, but we added to the general happy Christmas spirit in the town. Mary Curtis

I see the group as a self help group for improvers. I have only been learning the violin for two years and I am about Grade 2 level. I did not learn music at all as a child and I have had to teach myself to read music.

Thanks to Lynne Howell for the above photo.
On 15th October 2017 Saffron Harmony Choir joined WI and Community Choirs from Essex and Cambridgeshire in a Gala Charity Concert.
Proceeds from this event will go to Associated Country Women of the World, a charity that supports women and their communities worldwide.
Philippa Croft and members of the WI in and around Saffron Walden arranged the day. The Concert was hosted by Tim Lihoreau Creative Director and Presenter of Classic FM ‘More Music at Breakfast’
Taking part were seven Choirs, over two hundred singers, ages ranging from four to ninety five, singing songs from musicales, folk, classical, choral, popular and contemporary. Music by Irving Berlin, Bob Chilcott Anders, Howard Goodall, Ray Davis, Carly Simon, G.F Handel, Andrew Lloyd Webber, Rogers @ O Hammerstein, Take That, Leonard Cohen, Toto and more.
The concert was a complete sell out.
Many thanks to Philippa for all the time she and her helpers spent making this day a very enjoyable and successful one.
Joan Shadbolt, Choir coordinator.
