Stellar Acappella, who celebrated their first anniversary earlier this year, are a vibrant and dynamic group of women who love singing and sharing with others, and their passion for harmony has provided the opportunity to make sizeable donations to Suffolk Mind and The Lighthouse Women’s Aid charity.

At a presentation at Quay Place in Ipswich Gaynor Schofield musical director of Stellar Acappella spoke of her delight in the popularity of the group’s recent concert. She said: “we love being able to take our music to those who haven’t heard our harmonies before, as well as being able to support local charities chosen by the members”.

Stellar Acappella’s gorgeous harmonies are rehearsed and perfected to Gaynor’s very high standards and their songs are meaningful and life-enhancing.

Stellar Acappella is currently planning its schedule for 2019 and is available to perform for concerts and celebration events.
