St Andrew's Night with the Guild 30th November 2009

The Guild kindly invited the Opera Group of St Aloysius' College to join the Choir in a musical evening for St Andrew's Night in aid of a school for AIDS orphans in Nairobi in which members of the Opera Group will be working in February 2010. The evening raised over £300 for which we are enormously grateful.
