OPERA star Lesley Garrett will be celebrating St George’s Day at the University of Sheffield as she sings for leading dementia charity Lost Chord.
The Doncaster Diva is a patron and keen supporter of Lost Chord, the organisation that provides vital interactive musical sessions for people living with dementia in care homes and day centres across the region and nationally.
The April 23 concert at the University of Sheffield’s Firth Hall will see her take to the stage with Lost Chord musicians Anna Tilbrook and Clare Langan, along with the University of Sheffield Broadway Orchestra presenting a musical theatre programme in the evening’s second half.
“Lesley is one of our most enthusiastic patrons and has taken part in many wonderful events,” said Lost Chord Chief Executive Helena Muller.
“We are delighted that on this occasion she is returning to her South Yorkshire roots and the wonderful setting of the university’s historic Firth Hall.
“Lesley will be supported by an extraordinary lineup of great talent featuring two of Lost Chord’s finest professional musicians along with Scott Hayward and Joshua Goodman from the university plus young student musicians who could be the classical stars of the future.
“We expect demand to be high so we do advice booking as early as possible to avoid disappointment.”
The evening will begin at 7pm and tickets cost £25, including a drinks reception.
