Classical music treat by the Midlands’ best musicians Gig Caritas
CLASSIC music fans are in for a treat as the highly acclaimed Gig Caritas will perform three of the world’s best known pieces at Kidderminster Town Hall on March 26th.
The Gig Caritas Chorus and the Stourbridge Chamber Orchestra will perform Mozart’s Requiem in D Minor, Beethoven’s 5th Symphony and Handel’s Zadok the Priest.
The concert, which begins at 7:30 p.m., will feature soloists Louise Maguire, Judith Moreland, Edward Harrison and Jack Brookes, all under the watchful direction of conductor Keith Horsfall.
Gig Caritas will also attempt to raise funds at the same time for Kidderminster and District Youth Trust which support young people with their mental health as well as the Brierley Hill-based organization Resonance which helps train musicians and technicians entering the industry music.
Now in its 11th year, Gig Caritas has raised over £50,000 for good causes across the Black Country and West Midlands since its inception.
Co-founder David Herrington said: “We need to have up to 400 people volunteering to help and support us over the course of the year, all of whom are happy to give their time for free, many of whom are with us from the beginning. Nobody ever asked for money.
“Hopefully people will come out and support us again for what should be another great night.
“Although Gig Caritas were originally based in Stourbridge, we have played in various venues from Lichfield to Kidderminster”.
Tickets for the concert are just £10 and can be obtained at www.kidderminstertownhall.org.uk or on site.
Additional donations are also extremely welcome and collection buckets are provided at night.
