Following on from their successful concert in February, Jeanne and Alex Thorndike are holding another to raise funds towards the Cathedral Choir’s forthcoming tour to Sweden. The concert is at the Cathedral on Sunday 14 October at 5.00pm, and will include the beautiful For Last Songs by Strauss as well as the serene Spiegel im Spiegel by Arvo Part. They will be accompanied on piano by the Cathedral’s Director of Music Stephen Moore.
Alex and Jeanne can be seen at most services as their two boys are Choristers. They work as professional musicians themselves all over the world; Jeanne as a freelance singer and singing teacher and Alex as Assistant Principal Viola with the BBC National Orchestra of Wales and Professor of Viola at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama.
All are welcome to attend the concert. Admission is free and retiring collection will be taken.
