How it came about...
Regular musical concerts began in the URC in Whitehaven in December 2017. An initial carol services for Office Staff in the area let to consideration of a monthly concert. That initial event has developed to a monthly music in the community event, hosting a whole range of classical, film score covers to a recent attempt to Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen. Mike is incredibly grateful to Frank Bowler of St Bees Priory. Frank has been amazing supporting the setting up of these events with his superb playing. Another fantastic supporter of the set up is Franks wife Debs without whom we wouldn't have the fantastic videos in the
A passionate supporter of the concerts is our Minister the Rev'd Dave Harkison who despite the somewhat bewildering array of music has continued to encourage us in our music making. The great outcome of these events is the focal point and enjoyment which they pass onto the audience and we look forward to many more fantastic concerts.
