A taste of the West End can be heard this November as local choir ‘Worthing Voices’ team up with ‘The Anniversary Orchestra’ to bring you well-known songs from the stage and screen.
As part of their annual celebrations in the run-up to Christmas, Worthing Voices, led by Worthing-based conductor Shirley Linford, will be performing hit songs from the likes of Les Miserables and The Phantom of the Opera at The Woodland Centre in Rustington on Saturday November 29th.
Worthing Voices are a locally based choir who perform three concerts a year to help raise money for charities in the area, with this year’s chosen funds going towards helping raise money for Guildcare Haviland House, who have special dementia facilities opening in January 2015. Other charities that have benefited from concerts in the past include Marie Curie Cancer Care, Kent Surrey and Sussex Air Ambulance Trust, Worthing Hospital Stroke Unit and CLIC (Cancer and Leukaemia in Children).
Conductor Shirley Linford said: “We aim to perform choral pieces that can be enjoyed by a diverse audience, and in the past we’ve attracted music lovers from their teens to their 70’s.
“This year is set to be a fantastic mix of both popular stage songs as well as classics such as The Anvil Chorus and The Chorus of the Hebrew Slaves, and we’d urge as many people as possible to come down and enjoy an evening of music, as well as helping to raise money for a worthwhile charity at the same time.”
Worthing Voices will be accompanied by The Anniversary Orchestra led by Kay Durrant.
The concert starts at 7.00 pm and entry is free, with a retiring donation towards the supported charity.
