A CHRISTMAS musical concert is coming to Kidderminster this December, to raise money for a homeless charity.

On Sunday, December 12, Music for Sanctuary will be hosting a ‘Sanctuary at Christmas’ gala concert at Kidderminster Town Hall.

The show will feature the Central England Ensemble and the Bewdley Choral Society.

Founder of Music for Sanctuary, Anna Downes, said: “This particular concert is aid of St Paul’s Hostel, Worcester.

“Anthony Bradbury, one of the region's finest freelance conductors, is the orchestra's music director and he has been involved with the running of the orchestra for the last two decades.

“Bewdley Choral Society, conducted by Alastair Elliott, is a high standard choir which gives performances of the great choral classics several times each year to capacity audiences. T

“The programme for this concert features the Snowman by Howard Blake, narrated by Jacqui Smith, former Home Secretary and Strictly Star, excerpts from 'A Christmas Festival by David Bradbury', as well as Handel's Zadok the Priest and Hallelujah Chorus.”

Music for Sanctuary was set up in 2019 to raise money for homeless charities through musical events.

So far, the organisation has raised £17,500 which has been donated to various homeless charities across Worcestershire and the Black Country.
