Jonathan Smith, RPC Chair, presents cheque to Peter Green in aid of the Arnold Foundation.Rugby Philharmonic Choir supports the Arnold Foundation

In recognition of the Phil’s 150 years milestone and of the close relationship between the choir and Rugby School, a cheque for 1867.00 was presented to Peter Green,  Headmaster of Rugby School  in aid of a charity which the Phil has supported for some years. The Arnold Foundation aims to transform the lives of boys and girls from some of the country’s most disadvantaged communities by providing them with a boarding education at the School. It will be noted that the sum involved was not a random figure!

Rehearsals are on Tuesday evenings from 7.30 - 9.30pm at the United Reformed Church, Hillmorton Road, Rugby.
New members are very welcome. If you would like to join the choir, please come along to rehearsals. Please print and complete a New Members Form and bring it along with you.
