A small but talented group of singers are giving a concert in aid of the children’s charity Jessie’s Fund in Harrogate shortly.
Having raised £1000 for the local charity Talking Spaces last year, Beati hope to do just as well this time round with a feast of sacred and secular music - from John Rutter to Cole Porter to Bob Chilcott’s Jazz Mass.
Founded seven years ago from within the ranks of Harrogate Choral Society, Beati is a group of eight female voices led by conductor Marilynne Davies with a repertoire designed to appeal to everyone.
The cause for which the concert at St Robert’s Church Pannal at 7.30pm on Friday, January 17 is taking place, came about in memory of Jessica George, who died at the age of nine of a brain tumour after receiving wonderful treatment from a music therapist in a hospice.
The Concert for Jessie’s Fund will feature James Micklethwaite, renowned for success in a recent Young Musician of Harrogate Competitive Music Festival.
Christine Littlewood will once again delight the audience with verse readings accompanied by popular local pianist Beryl Pankhurst.
Tickets are available (including mulled wine and mince pies) from Café Culture, 69-71 Leeds Road, Harrogate or on the door.
