TEAM CLEO CHARITY CONCERT
April 14 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Come along and enjoy the sound of strings in our wonderful Abbey and at the same time support a very worthwhile charity.
Members of Sounds Interesting will be playing to raise money for Team Cleo, the children’s brain tumour charity. One of our musicians tragically lost her daughter to brain cancer and has set up this charity to raise awareness of the early signs of brain tumour in children. Early awareness leads to early diagnosis which can lead to treatment with a greater chance of success. Team Cleo aims to help provide tools to facilitate that all-important early awareness.
The music, by American-born local composer, John Charles Hyslop, will include two premiere performances:
- Neolithic Suite for 3 Violas, consists of songs and dances which might have been heard at our ancestor´s festive gatherings–perhaps at Mitchell´s Fold or other local monumental sites—circa five thousand years ago;
- String Quartet no 3, consists of another set of songs and dances, with a folk flavour, but which would have been popular much more recently.
Entry is free of charge, though generous donations in support of Team Cleo are welcome.
