OliFest! Riff Raff’s Winter Concert (Southville & Kingswood groups)
The Southville and Kingswood Riff Raff groups will be combining in a winter performance at St Paul’s Church in Southville, Bristol.
It is Oli Poole’s last concert as Riff Raff’s teacher and conductor. To celebrate his huge contribution to the choir over the last nine years, this concert is an OliFest! All the new song arrangements we are learning this term are arranged by Oli.
With a combination of energetic and more gentle pop and rock songs, Bristol’s colourful a cappella choir, Riff Raff, would love you to hear the songs they’ve been working on for the last few months.
Riff Raff Choir sings original song arrangements of everything from 80’s rock to modern masterpieces, in four or five part harmony. The Southville and Kingswood Riff Raff groups are led by Elaine Wilson and Oli Poole.
Supporting Riff Raff Choir will be Reduced Riff Raff (Elaine Wilson, Oli Poole, Sarah Safraz, Helen Bucknell and Giuseppe Amesbury), who will also be singing a selection of Oli’s pop and rock song arrangements.
There will be a collection for Holly Hedge animal sanctuary in memory of Elaine Lewsey (Southville member) – a charity close to her heart that rescues and rehomes unwanted, abandoned and often mistreated cats and dogs.
Please come along and join us in what promises to be an uplifting afternoon of song.
Doors open at 3.30pm.
