Surrey Life & Shooting Star Chase Carol Concert

Join us for a wonderful evening of Christmas carols and festive celebrations.

We are thrilled to be joined by Connie Talbot, International phenomenon and star of Britian’s Got Talent who will perform a trio of magnificent songs for your enjoyment. There will also be performances from Elmbridge Choir and our extremely talented Shooting Star Chase Family Choir and of course the opportunity for you to sing along to much loved Christmas carols.  After the concert there will be a wine reception with canapés which you are welcome to attend.

Your support will allow us to make Christmas extra special for the babies, children and young people supported by Shooting Star Chase, enabling them to take part in traditions that many well children take for granted. We can make it possible for a family to stay together at one of our hospices over the festive period, rather than one parent staying in hospital with their child and the other parent being at home with siblings.

When: Thursday 17th December

Where: St George’s College Chapel, Weybridge Road, Addlestone, KT15 2QS

Time: 7pm

Price: Early bird price of £15 each until 20 November. Thereafter tickets will be £20 each.

To purchase tickets please ring 01932 823100 or email reception@shootingstarchase.org.uk  
We are happy to take payment by card, cheque or cash. Please note that all seating is unreserved.

From Aston Mead - Land & Planning (Surrey Estate Agents)

BGT’s Connie Talbot - star at Surrey Life Shooting Star Chase carol concert
16 Nov 2015

Tis’ the season for the Surrey Life Shooting Star Chase carol concert, where the festive event on Thursday 17 December at St George’s College Chapel in Addlestone will be made merry and bright with a special performance from Britain’s Got Talent’s Connie Talbot.

The 14-year-old singer, who reached the final of the first series of Britain’s Got Talent in 2007 and has since released four albums, will give a special performance of Adele’s Make You Feel My Love, Sam Smith’s Writing’s On The Wall and the Christmas classic Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas at the carol concert.

In their 10th anniversary year, the 140-strong Elmbridge Choir and supported mums and dads from the Shooting Star Chase Family Choir - who regularly sing together for music therapy - will be joining Connie to celebrate the most wonderful time of the year from 7pm.

I wonder how they know what Connie will sing - Event sponsors perhaps!

A page from Shooting Star Chase -




In 2007 an aspiring young singer stepped onto the stage of England’s enormously popular TV program Britain’s Got Talent, flashed an adorable gap-toothed smile and instantly won the heart of the notoriously difficult to please Simon Cowell as well as the British viewing public. In just a couple of minutes, a true star had been born. What made this feat all the more remarkable was the fact that Connie Talbot was just six years old.

Since that first appearance on Britain’s Got Talent, Connie has become an international phenomenon, with appearances all around the globe. She has accumulated over 1 billion YouTube views and has attracted glowing media attention. Connie won Gold in her home country, UK, platinum and double platinum discs in several other countries. The Guinness Book of World Records certified Connie with two accolades, youngest artist in the UK ever to reach the charts and the youngest ever to receive a gold record.

Connie was the opening act for the spectacular Road To Hope concert. This event was to mark the opening of the G20 World Summit in Seoul. Connie’s performance was seen by all the world’s leaders. Connie has also appeared on the Oprah and the Ellen show in America, has performed for a tv show in Germany with George Clooney!

She has had four number ones in four different countries, including a number one in America, performing in over 20 countries and giving her the title of an International star. At present, Connie, who is still only 14 years old is working on her 5th album, to be released shortly. She has written a lot of her own songs on this album were she plays the guitar and the piano.

To purchase tickets please ring 01932 823100 or email reception@shootingstarchase.org.uk. We are happy to take payment by card, cheque or cash. Please note that all seating is unreserved.

I made some of my surround sound recordings of Connie at the Shooting Star Chase Concert but the sound in the chapel was not very good. A lot of reverberation and the microphone Connie was using was not sounding good. Here is one of the recordings that I don't think worked well. I've had to do a lot of processing to try and get the sound clearer. Connie of course sung wonderfully. Just a reminder that my recordings require headphones to hear the full sound.

Hi tony!

Thanks for posting that mp3 of Connie's MYFML - great song.
Sounds pretty good to me .... but I haven't got the keen ear of a sound engineer!
I can hear the echo in that lofty chapel space, but still very enjoyable to listen though.

If anybody would like to hear the Elmbridge Choir at the Shooting Star Chase Concert, here is a link to one of my surround sound recordings (use headphones to hear it correctly).

Hi everyone,

as you all may have noticed, I had the great luck to be able to attend that wonderful event. I met wonderful friends there after quite a while, like Chris (conniephant) and Tony, and of course, Sharon, Connie and Gavin. So thanks to everyone again, it felt so much like meeting old friends, and we share so much over the years.

Now, Chris and me were allowed to do video of the event, and Tony did an audio record. As I know how impatient everyone is ( Wink ), I edited the first video already, with camera sound. I hope that we will be able to use Tony's recording as soon as it is ready. So, waiting for that you can already enjoy the first of three songs, Adele's "Make You Feel My Love", which Connie performed with amazing depth and feeling:
