Cantobelle are a female vocal trio that have been together since 2011 providing entertainment at concerts, weddings and celebrations. With Cate Clark, Suzy Yates and Lucy Hinkley’s wide range of voices, the trio produce a special sound in their performances.

The Newchurch Male Voice Choir, originated in 1967, present a full range of popular songs, spirituals, show songs, traditional male voice choir anthems. The Choir raises money for many Island charities and causes and were one of the first groups to raise funds, and the profile, of the Wight Brainy Bunch when Mark and Kathryn founded it on his recovery from his first brain tumour.

The choir also champions young musician and singers from the Island with a bursary from the Bassett Stevens Memorial Award.

The special guest is 19yr old Soprano, Thea Grace Callaghan. Thea is in the 2nd year of study at the Trinity Laban Conservatoire.

Proceeds from the concert will all go to the Wight Brainy Bunch to enable them to carry on the fantastic work they do in assisting people of all ages on the Island who suffer a brain tumour. They help show that there is a life to celebrate after such an illness.
