Windsor Community Orchestra

Carolathon in support of Christian Aid

The orchestra contributed to the Windsor Christian Aid Carolathon on the 20th December. The Carolathon was a 6 hour event where different churches and organisations took slots to perform carols and other Christmas music. Money was raised by asking for donations before or during the event. The orchestra had a 15 minute slot, which included a mixture of orchestra recordings, solo recordings and a live performance. This showcased the variety of ensemble and solo performance that a typical concert would include. It finished with the video of We wish you a merry Christmas that was shown in the 2020 Christmas concert. You can see the video on the Gallery page. A second slot was filled by one of the families in the orchestra, where Anikó, Máté and Dombé provided a video of them performing flute and violin arrangements of Christmas music.

The event raised over £2000 for the Christian Aid Christmas appeal.
