The Mumbai Stop-Gaps Choral Ensemble
Sacred Heart Trott Street
Sunday 20th May at 5pm
Sacred Heart Church, Trott Street are hosting a concert by this long-standing Choir from Mumbai, India. Originally founded after the floods of 1972 in Chennai the Stop-Gaps came into being to raise funds for those most affected. Bringing together people across the cultural, class and religious divides, hence the name Stop-Gaps, the Choir gathered every Christmas to perform Carols and other seasonal music. After falling into abeyance, the Stop-Gaps eventually resettled in Mumbai and has been packing out venues since then, even performing for Pope John II.
Members of St Mary’s are warmly invited to join this concert of sacred music.
