Continuing after success of the Christmas concert, the Midlands Hospitals' Choir held it's spring concert in aid of CLIC Sargent.

Midlands Hospitals' Choir Spring Concert

The concert held at the Church of St Faith and St Laurence in Harborne, Birmingham saw a great turn out to hear the choir sing in recognition of the 100th anniversary of the First World War.

To mark the occasion, Conductor David Lawrence chose two Requiems for the choir to sing.

The first was a Requiem - In Flanders Field by Derek Lawrence featuring soloist baritone, Oliver Sammons. After a short break, the audience heard from CLIC Sargent, Fundraising Manager Anna Finnegan who spoke about the charity's work in the West Midlands.

The final piece performed by the choir was the well-known Requiem by John Rutter. Soprano Soloist, Beverley Warboys was the special guest for the piece and was very well received by the audience.

CLIC Sargent Fundraising Manager Anna Finnegan said: "We are very grateful to the Midlands Hospitals' Choir for donating the profits from the concert to CLIC Sargent.

"The choir have been supporting CLIC Sargent since they formed 33 years ago. Music of course very much featuring in the charity's history as Sir Malcom Sargent was one of Britain's most famous conductors."

The Midland Hospitals Choir shall be performing their annual Christmas celebration this year at the Birmingham Town Hall. For more details, please contact Susan Buckingham on 07976 157225 or email: susan.buckingham@blueyonder.co.uk
