Friends remembered in Sidmouth Gospel Choir concert
Saxsation Sax Quartet joins gospel choir for charity concert at Sidmouth Parish Church
MEMBERS of Sidmouth Gospel Choir will remember friends Susan Barton and soldier Corporal Stephen Curley at a Songs of Hope concert at Sidmouth Parish Church.
Susan, a retired head teacher, who volunteered for The Hope Christian Trust and set up the Kindergarten Lighthouse School in Gaza, died of cancer in May, while Corporal Curley, whose widow Kirianne is a former Sidmouth College student and has parents living locally, was killed in action in Afghanistan by a roadside bomb at around the same time.
The choir will link with Saxsation Sax Quartet for the concert, which takes place at 7.30pm on Saturday, October 9.
Choir member Anni Hindle plays with the quartet, which is coming together especially for the concert.

Angie said: “We are always happy to invite new members to join SGC. There is no audition and no need to read music as we learn by ear. We are especially interested in recruiting sopranos at the moment and are also on the look out for any musicians who may like to join us.”
