Concerts Under the Spire - Saturday Coffee Concerts and Wednesday Lunchtime Concerts

by Alderley Edge Methodist Church  |  Posted at 17:48pm on 28th February 2023

After our break in December, and  our first 2 Concers to welcome in 2023,we looked forward to seeing everyone once again on 15th March 2023, when we welcomed students from Chethams School of Music in Manchester. Amazingly, we are now approaching our last Concert in the 2022/2023 Series, and to bring it to a conclusion we shall welcome Chetham's School of Music once again. We never know until fairly close to the Concert date who we should expect, the ages, the instruments, and the accompanying Staff member(s).

But what we always know is that the quality of the performance from each young person will be excellent, and, indeed, above.

We decided to use the first 3 months of the year to dedicate any profits from the Concerts to the work of Marie Curie Cancer Care, being aware that, across the country,collection boxes will be gathering monies from the sales of little daffodil broaches, or from other events too.

One of our regular volunteers at the monthly Lunchtime Concerts, Margaret Howe, was also a very dedicated volunteer of Marie Curie, and used to work hard for both, particularly each March. Sadly, Margaret died a year past January, and so we felt content to use Marie Curie at this time of the year, also expressing our love and appreciation for all she did for both the Methodist Church, and also Marie Curie.  

The final 3 months of our Series is in support of Christian Aid.                                          

We look forward to seeing you at the Concert, on 21st June, and, as usual, light lunches will be available from 12 mid-day, prior to the 1.00p.m. concert - entry by Programme, £7.
