It’s been nearly a week since our “Music for Life” concert at Wakefield Cathedral, and now the dust has settled I feel I can write about it. It was an incredible concert, with some really remarkable and memorable performances. All the singers on stage raised their game to create a great sound, and I’m grateful to every single one of you. We made people laugh, cry, think and leap to their feet with applause – exactly what a concert should do.
I was particularly glad to finally produce a larger-scale event in Wakefield – we’ve had big things in Sheffield and Nottingham before, but this was a first for most of our Wakefield singers, and from the comments I’ve received this week, it’s clear that people really enjoyed the experience. I hope that means that we’ll have more and more of the Wakefield crowd joining us for our larger-scale things in other areas in the future.
Of course, we weren’t just singing for pleasure on Saturday – we were also raising awareness of organ transplantation, and funds for “Live Life Then Give Life”. I’m thrilled to announce that we’ll be making a donation of £1,241.05 to this very worthy cause.
