You will see the choirs busking around Aberystwyth 10.30- 12, raising money for Medicin Sans Frontieres and Aberystwyth Samaritans. Please lend an ear and give generously!

The main event is the Making Waves concert at the Morlan – 7.30- 9pm, suggested donation of £5 again to our chosen charities. Don’t miss out on hearing not just us, but 3 other amazing choirs! making waves
