Intrepid singers from Birmingham Festival Choral Society braved the snow and ice on Tuesday to sing carols at the Cube, the distinctive Birmingham landmark containing offices, shops, apartments and restaurants. The ‘Carol Festival’ was to raise money for the Birmingham Children’s Hospital, the Cube’s chosen charity.
The atrium of the Cube is open to the elements and if you’re wondering whether it was cold, take a look at our two Music Directors for the evening, Alexandra and David Wynne!
The atrium looked very pretty though, with the huge Christmas tree.
BFCS started the evening with a selection of Christmas music, then we were followed by the children of the St Chad’s Children’s choir, led by both David and Alexandra. Finally, we heard from two of Alexandra’s workplace choirs made up of singers from firms based in the Cube.
We hope that all those workers, shoppers and diners passing through the Cube enjoyed the Christmas music, and dropped a generous donation in the collecting buckets for the Birmingham Children’s Hospital. Birmingham Festival Choral Society was pleased to support such a worthwhile cause.
