A CHOIR with an international sound will be performing for a good cause.

Singing group Resonate will be playing at Maldon Methodist Church on October 19 from 7.30pm.

The concert of world music hopes to raise funds for Maldon Refugee Response Group.

Resonate are a group of twelve singers who met in a world music choir in Colchester.

A spokesman said: “After singing in the choir for about 15 years, the band members decided to take a separate path together and deepen a repertoire they particularly appreciate: the Sacred Harp, a musical tradition of the late eighteenth century that originates in the southern United States, the traditional Slavic song of Bulgarian, Croatian and Georgian among others, and the traditional songs of South Africa as well as other African countries.

“However, their repertoire is not limited to these three styles.

“Expect them to surprise you with songs from other parts of the world as well.

“Look out for Blue Grass, Blues and Gospel Songs alongside prison work songs.”

This concert will be the UK premier performance for Resonate following their highly acclaimed tour in Brittany in June.

Tickets are £8 in advance and £10 on the door
