Choirs from around Merseyside were in good voice as they descended on St Mary’s Lowe House church, St Helens on Wednesday 29 May for the Merseyside Choirs Festival 2024.  

Each choir performed four songs at the packed church to raise hundreds of pounds for UNICEF. The choirs involved were: Celebration Choir, New Street Singers, Pilkington Choir, St Helens Ladies Choir, Liverpool Community Choir, Grand National Chorus and Connected Voices Choir.  

Setting a festival mood, the evening began with Lowe House resident organist Anthony Brookes playing the Christie theatre organ, thrilling the crowd with an extended medley of popular tunes old and new.  

Then every choir sang their heart out and it was a wonderful evening.  “We wish to say a big thank you to Father Michael and parishioners of Lowe House Church for their welcome and hospitality,” said the organisers.

Next year the festival will be held in May at the Metropolitan Cathedral in aid of Alzheimer’s UK.  If any choirs are interested in joining in, please contact us on 07366 024975.

The next organ concert of popular music will be performed by Kevin Grunill at St Mary’s Lowe House on Sunday 20 October 2024 at 3.00pm.  Tickets £10.00 at the door.
