Bishops Appeal – Fund-Raising Concert

The following news item, adapted from a blog posting last week, appears in this morning’s edition [22 May 2016] of the Bunclody Union Newsletter in Co Wexford:

Bishops Appeal – Fund-Raising Concert

(By kind permission of Rev’d Patrick Comerford)

What promises to be a fun evening for a good cause has been organised for Christ Church Cathedral next month. The Great American Songbook concert is in aid of Bishops’ Appeal and is taking place in the Cathedral on Tuesday 16 June at 8 pm.

This promises to be a fantastic evening with the Midwest Young Artists Conservatory Orchestra from Chicago, conducted by Allan Dennis, and the Irish tenor, Paul Byrom.

The programme includes an evening of popular classics and show songs from some of the most accomplished young musicians in the US who will showcase the best songs from Broadway musicals, Hollywood films and theatre stages, celebrating works having melodies that have become timeless treasures.

The causes supported by the Bishops’ Appeal include fund-raising effort on behalf of a solar panel for al-Ahli Hospital in Gaza.

The Residential Priest Vicar in Christ Church Cathedral, the Revd Garth Bunting is already committed to raising €10,000 through the cathedral towards installing solar panels at al-Ahli Hospital, and the cathedral board is supporting the venture with a donation from its charitable giving.

Tickets for the concert on 16 June are only €15 each and are available here.
