The concert, on Saturday, March 10, features music from across a millennium, all written by composers whose names begin with the letter B, from Hildegard von Bingen to David Bednall.
James Loader, a member of the Sine Nomine Singers, explained: “The bee is the heraldic symbol of the city of Manchester, so it seemed entirely appropriate for us to support the fund. The people killed or injured at Manchester Arena in May 2017 were out enjoying music, and enjoyment of wonderful music is the whole reason why our choir exists.”
The choir, whose members mainly hail from Croydon and Bromley, will also sing works by Bach, Brahms, Bruckner, Bartók, and others, including, appropriately enough, Frank Bridge’s ‘The Bee’.
The concert takes place at 7.30pm at St George’s Church, Bickley, BR1 2BE. Tickets are £10 (£5 for under 16s and job seekers) and can be bought in advance HERE.
