Raising money for the Vulindlela Guardians to help run an orphanage in Zimbabwe
On Saturday 27th July at 7:30pm, the Charity Symphony Orchestra will be returning to the beautiful St. Mary’s Church on Putney High Street to raise money for the Vulindlela Guardians, who help run an orphanage in Zimbabwe.
The programme will include excerpts from Carmen by Bizet, Dvorak’s Slavonic Rhapsody No. 1 and Brahms’ Symphony No. 4, and will be conducted by Royal College graduate Rowan Baker.
The Charity Symphony Orchestra draws players from a pool of over 300 musicians, from both amateur and professional backgrounds. All those involved with the orchestra – both the players and the committee – donate their time and skill to the goal of raising as much money as possible for deserving causes. The musicians only come together on the day of the concert to rehearse, with some travelling long distances across both the UK and Europe at their own cost to attend. The orchestra mostly performs in Hampshire and London, but has also toured Italy, where it played with the wonderful AllegroModerato – an orchestra supporting musicians with varying special needs.
Tickets are £12 and £10 and are available on the door.
