Requiem Concert

Local musicians and choir aiming high for Air Ambulance Charity

A full orchestra and choir are set to stage a special performance in aid of the Midlands Air Ambulance Charity in Pershore Abbey at 7.30 pm on Saturday 13th April. The programme will feature a live performance of In Paradisum, an original requiem by Andrew Hemming (Musical Director of popular Pershore Operatic and Dramatic Society) along with music by American composer Keith Jarrett played by award winning local concert pianist Marcel Zidani. Andrew told us that the Air Ambulance Charity is close to his heart. “My Grandad Harry, who lost his son Stephen after a car crash before I was born, often wondered would Stephen’s chances of survival have improved had the air ambulance been operating then? Raising cash to help avoid other families having to ask that question seemed appropriate, especially as the concert date will mark the third anniversary of Harry’s death. ” Grateful to the musicians and singers volunteering their time and talent to this fundraiser, Andrew added, “Thanks to their interpretive artistry, the evening’s music promises to match the majesty of its setting. Together, we aim to raise enough cash for one of our Air Ambulance’s life-saving missions, but that’s down to people’s support. Please get your ticket and – together – we’ll keep our Air Ambulance funded and flying for all.”

Tickets are on sale at Blue in Broad Street, Pershore Town Hall, or online at Ticket Source. whats-on/pershore/pershoreabbey-church-walk/inparadisum/2024-04-13/19:30/
