Rowans Hospice, in conjunction with Portsmouth Cathedral Choir and The Renaissance Choir, is hosting a Christmas Concert by Candlelight on Saturday 7 December to celebrate 25 years of the Hospice and raise money for its Silver Jubilee Appeal – an ambitious capital appeal to raise funds to redevelop the hospice building to ensure it is fit for future care.
The concert programme will include beautifully written music from the 17th to the 21st century and carols to celebrate the festive season. The feast of seasonal music will include Renaissance music by Lassus, pieces from “The Messiah”, settings by Willcocks and Leighton, as well as modern works by composers such as Rutter and Chilcott. There will be old favourites including “Hark the Herald” and “Carol of the Bells”.
Limited tickets are still available for this concert from the Rowans Silver Jubilee website. Tickets start from just £10.00 and all money raised by this event will go to supporting the renovation of Rowans Hospice.
Rowans Hospice Silver Jubilee Appeal is an ambitious capital appeal project in 3 phases that will improve the overall experience for patients, families and carers. Phase 1 of the project will involve a complete renovation of the hospice building including bringing patients rooms up to date with modern technology and design elements and improving communal areas. This work will ensure that the hospice can continue to deliver outstanding care for the next 25 years and beyond.
