Char­ity con­cert has some­thing for all

Macclesfield Express - - CHARITY ROUND-UP -

A SINGING group which raises money for char­i­ties will per­form a spring con­cert.

Capric­cio Vo­cal En­sem­ble, set up to raise money for char­ity, will ‘Spring Into Song’ for the per­for­mance at the United Re­formed Church on Park Green, with money raised go­ing to the Mac­cles­field and District Branch of Arthri­tis Re­search UK.

It’s the sec­ond year run­ning the choir has held the event, last year rais­ing a mas­sive £1,500 for the char­ity.

A spokesman for the choir said: “The pro­gramme for this spring con­cert in­cludes mu­sic ap­pro­pri­ate for the time of year. The group will sing English Madri­gals by Thomas Mor­ley, pieces ap­pro­pri­ate for Lent, Bri­tish folk songs ar­ranged by John Rut­ter and foot-tap­ping set­tings of Cole Porter and Gersh­win. Mind­ful of the date of the con­cert, there will also be a piece called ‘April’s Fool’.

“If you have never been to a con­cert of choral mu­sic and be­lieve it would be stuffy and for­mal, think again. The at­mos­phere at a Capric­cio con­cert is re­laxed and in­for­mal and de­signed to ap­peal to a wide va­ri­ety of mu­si­cal tastes. Give it a go – you might be pleas­antly sur­prised – and sup­port a worth­while cause at the same time.”

The con­cert is at 7.30pm on Satur­day, 1 April. Tick­ets cost £10 or free for un­der 18s.

Tick­ets and fur­ther in­for­ma­tion from 01625 873491, 01625 263558, the Vis­i­tor In­for­ma­tion Cen­tre at Mac­cles­field Town Hall, or on the door.
