North Wind members joined with the Northern English Singers and Northern Praeclassica in 'Faire is the Heaven' - a programme of songs of aspiration and yearning in various styles from the 16th to the 20th centuries. It included Bruckner's Mass in C minor and Faire is the Heaven by Harris. The wind players performed the first movement of the Mozart Serenade in Eb and a Dvorak Slavonic Dance.
Proceeds were in aid of the Great North Air Ambulance.
