We are so delighted that Marika Rauscher will be getting us in the mood for Christmas with her extraordinary vocals. Amongst her performance credits, Marika sang for the Royal Family accompanied by the Band of Scot Guards (a performance that was recorded as the official Christmas Concert, and broadcast globally on Christmas Day 2015 by BFBS Radio) Her vocals can also be heard on numerous Hans Zimmer film soundtrack recordings, including Madagascar 2, Spiderman 3, The Fantastic Four, Pirates of the Caribbean, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, King Kong, War of the Worlds, The Da Vinci Code and The Island and features on the original west-end cast recording of Cameron Macintosh’s production ‘Mary Poppins’ and ‘Flashdance: The Musical’. Amongst her recording credits are clients such as XBox, the BBC and the English National Opera. She also does absolutely amazing work with Singing for Wellbeing including starting up 2x NHS Staff Choirs for CLCH NHS Trust during lockdown, covering 10 Boroughs of London and Hertfordshire!
Age UK Richmond’s Patch Ukulele Band have been practising some real showstoppers and will leave you beaming from ear to ear. They were the inspiration behind The London Ukulele Project having demonstrated how brilliant the ukulele is to bring people together and make new friends. Many of the players have been part of the band for 3 + years now so have a number of performances under their belts including performances at the Cabbage Patch and at the infamous Half Moon Pub in Putney. We have also performed at care homes and local farmers markets.
