“Fighting for Freedom”concert by the Amnesty Chorale 3 November

Posted on by Tania Birtwistle

7.30pm on Saturday 3rd November, Holy Trinity Church, Blythburgh

Tickets £10 (£7 concessions) available on the door.

The Amnesty Chorale presents an evening of music and readings commemorating the centenary of the end of the First World War, and marking other struggles against oppression in the last hundred years. Proceeds from the concert will go to Amnesty International, an organisation that continues to promote universal human rights and to expose injustice and the inhumane treatment of prisoners and minority groups.

The programme will include the “Agnus Dei” from Britten’s War Requiem, Vaughan Williams “Serenade to Music” and an extract from the Verdi Requiem with Sarah Gallop, ex-Wenhaston resident, as soloist. The choir will be made up of experienced singers from local choirs and further afield, and will be conducted by Ellis Bell, director of the Blythburgh Singers, and Richard Brain, Director of Music at Christ Church, Southgate in north London.

We very much hope you will come and support  us.
