The Honourable The Irish Society and Derry City & Strabane District Council are jointly promoting a concert in the Guildhall at 3.00 p.m. on Sunday 26th June 2016 to celebrate the initial refurbishment by Wells Kennedy Partnership of the 3,000 pipe organ. Catherine Ennis, President of the Royal College of Organists and Resident Organist at St Lawrence Jewry church in the City of London, has agreed to perform and will be accompanied by Codetta, the internationally acclaimed Chamber Choir from Londonderry. The performance will feature choristers from Christ's Hospital School, which has historic connections with the City of London and also from St Mary’s College in Derry.
The Irish Society and the Council have also been raising sponsorship from charities in the City of London and local businesses in Londonderry. All proceeds from sponsorship and ticket sales will be donated equally to the Foyle Hospice and the Mayor of Derry’s annual charity appeal (Action Cancer and the Tear Fund).
Tickets are now on sale at £10 from the following website: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/the-organ-event-at-the-guildhall-tickets-19741174384
Please support this good cause by purchasing a ticket and encourage your friends to come along too. We very much hope this will be a ‘sell-out’ and with your help it just might be.
