Come and join us for what promises to be a very special performance of Verdi’s Requiem with a 250 person strong choir and orchestra directed by Robert Carey.
We are delighted to announce Manchester’s first concert of 2016 in support of CLIC Sargent.
Brought together by Penny Anson of the CLIC Sargent Singers, over 250 performers in the choir and orchestra, including professional soloists, will perform Verdi’s choral masterpiece and one of the most enduring Requiems ever.
Inspired by musical director Robert Carey, who generously gives his time and huge enthusiasm to the concert in addition to his demanding post as director of music at Manchester Grammar School.
CLIC Sargent Fundraising Manager Maria Healy said: “This promises to be a truly special event celebrating music and supporting the work that CLIC Sargent does, experienced first hand by the organiser Penny.”

Penny said: “We began our concerts when my son Joe was diagnosed with Hodgkin Lymphoma aged 15 in 1996.
"After successful treatment he became ill with secondary leukaemia and sadly died in 1999, just after his 18th birthday. Our family, Joe in particular, received tremendous support from CLIC Sargent both at the Young Oncology Unit in The Christie in Manchester, and at home.
"It is impossible to describe the huge part the CLIC Sargent Social Workers played in our mental and physical survival.
"Joe played the trombone and was planning to study music at university. We were so grateful for all the help and encouragement Joe had received throughout his treatment.
"We wanted to help other young cancer patients so we began a new journey together with Manchester Grammar School, where Joe was a pupil."
