VOICES of the Forest choir raised £200 for Marie Curie Cancer Care at a Mediterranean evening at Ringwood Meeting House.

The audience tucked into Mediterranean snacks prepared by the choir as part of the concert.

Members of the audience also got to sing along as musical director Fabian Lochner gave them a quick lesson and then conducted them in a rousing rendition of the song Laughing at the end of the evening’s festivities.

Voices of the Forest has around 40 members and meets weekly in Emery Down.

The choir’s repertoire takes in world music and original work from many countries and cultures, as well as some classical and English traditional songs.
