Celebrating 30 years
of DSBC and Quorum Singers
9th September 2019

Cross street centre, Dagnall Street Baptist Church
St Albans
Lunchtime concert: 12:30 - 12:50


30 years ago, Quorum Singers of St Albans came to be.

A small group of singers from Dagnall Street Baptist Church, gathered together to perform at the opening of the Cross Street Centre, and 30 years later, we're back at DSBC to help them celebrate their (and our) anniversary.

We're performing on the Monday, but there are celebrations throughout the week.

Past events

2019

July 13th: Another ‘African concert’ at Lourdes Hall, Harpenden. This time around, it was in collaboration with Harpenden Spotlight on Africa (HSoA). With audience participation, colourful tops, an African style meal and borrowing a percussionist (Tim), a change of style for us. Raising a huge £1,240, it was a very successful, relaxed and colourful evening.

March 30th: “Songs of Peace, Love and Praise” at Dagnall Street Baptist Church, joined by Alla Kravchuk Alban (soprano) and Christopher Gould (piano), who were both spectacular. Raising over £1000 for the church’s Christian Aid project fund for children affected by HIV/AIDs in Kenya. (which ends up being over £21000 once matched by USAid!)

2018

December 15th: Singing our annual Christmas concert at St Martin, Shenley (with mince pies and mulled wine!) raising £410 for the church and for Unicef. 

December 8th & 22nd: Aiding Rennie Grove Hospice Care’s fundraising efforts at Sainsbury’s in London Colney and singing for shoppers at Christopher Place, St Albans. A fantastic hour of carol singing both days, contributing to over £1,100 raised at Sainsbury’s, and over £300 at Christopher Place. Festive generosity very clear.

July 7th: Returning to Dagnall Street Baptist Church, St Albans, to perform our ‘Under African Skies’ Summer concert. Raising £480 for the chosen charity, with a further £8000+ added by USAid matching.

April 8th: Supporting the University of Hertfordshire Events Management students with their afternoon tea at Shendish Manor. We provided entertainment and background music as the guests enjoyed their tea and cake, raising over £500 for Herts Young Homeless.

February 22nd: Perfomring at the 35th Anniversary celebration of Hearing Dogs for Deaf People, enjoying the surroundings and atmosphere of the historic St Albans Cathedral and Abbey Church (and enjoying all the working dogs in the audience!)

Our 30th Anniversary:

In September 2019, we are celebrating our 30th anniversary, and performing in the same way we started – in the Cross Street Cafe at Dagnall Street Baptist Church. Back to where it all began, and with some of the founding members still performing!

Our 25th Anniversary:

One key concert for us was 4th October 2014, when we celebrated our quarter-century anniversary with a concert where it all began – Dagnall Street Baptist Church, St Albans. We were joined by old members, and our esteemed and loved original conductor, Ewart Hopkins, for a concert of old favourites and new music.
