The Chamber Orchestra and Chamber Choir performed in the festive ‘Light Up A Life’ concert at St John’s Cathedral on Tuesday 4 December. They performed works including Purcell’s ‘Christmas Concerto’, which featured Nathan Cheng (10R) on trumpet, Eric Whitacre’s ‘Glow’ and ‘Sleigh Ride’ by Peter Martin. Kate Sommerville, Head of Wilberforce House, attended the evening and said, “The concert was wonderful, the choir and orchestra were amazing. ‘Somewhere Only We Know’ was a great arrangement and the enjoyment of the students was very evident.”
‘Light Up A Life’ is a festive concert in support of the Society for the Promotion of Hospice Care which raises funds for its Jockey Club Home for Hospice in Sha Tin – a care home for 30 patients to live out their final days or weeks in dignity and as comfortably as possible. Half the beds are available at a heavily subsidised rate for those that need them. Visit http://www.hospicecare.org.hk for more information or to make a donation.
