Vivaldi and Stravinsky to celebrate opening of Sir Ben Ainslie Sports Centre at Truro School
10:22am Wednesday 18th September 2013 in Cornwall
A choral and orchestral concert will celebrate the opening of Truro School’s Sir Ben Ainslie Sports Centre later this month.
Held on Saturday, September 28 at 7.30pm, the concert will feature 300 performers from Truro and across Cornwall.
They will include members of Truro School Choirs, Truro Choral Society, Cornwall Youth Choir and Truro Symphony Orchestra, all conducted by Martin Palmer.
The concert will feature two famous works: Vivaldi’s Gloria in the first half and Stravinsky’s The Rite of Spring following the intermission.
Tickets are free. To claim contact the Cornish Riviera Box Office at www.crbo.co.uk or call 01726 879500.
The concert is being held in aid of Voluntary Action for Development (VAD), an organisation which works with rural disadvantaged communities in Uganda to help improve water, hygiene and sanitation.
It is one of the smaller organisations supported by the Methodist Relief and Development Fund. In 2011 and 2013 students from Truro School travelled to Uganda to work with VAD.
All the professional musicians involved are giving their services free of charge and there will be a retiring collection or donations towards VAD.
