McCarthy and Stone Launches Appeal for Schools and Choirs in Hampshire

25 September 2019

McCarthy and Stone, the UK’s leading developer and manager of retirement communities, is calling for school and community choirs in and around Hampshire to take centre stage this Christmas at developments across the region.

McCarthy and Stone is on the lookout for pitch-perfect choirs to perform from Monday 25th November to Friday 13th December 2019 at the following developments:

  • Wayfarer Place, The Dean, New Alresford
  • Shilling Place, London Road, Purbrook
  • Austen Place, Lower Turk Street, Alton
  • The Boathouse, Riverdene Place, Bitterne Park, Southampton

Choirs can be amateur or professional – but are limited to under 20 participants. All those interested are invited to email with brief information on where they would like to perform and preferred date, marking the subject header “Call for Choirs Hampshire.” Choirs are urged to express their interest before Friday 18th October. 

Ciara Hilley, Divisional Marketing Manager for McCarthy and Stone, said: “We know music and singing can be a powerful force in helping older people in so many different ways, which is why our Christmas Choir events are such a fantastic opportunity for homeowners and local people to be involved in.  

“We are urging the talented people of Hampshire to come forward for their chance to join us later in the year to hit the high notes and spread a little festive cheer. Performance slots are limited so we urge anyone interested to get in touch without delay.”
