Popular contralto Bridget Budge is bringing together a ladies’ chamber choir to perform a special fundraiser at Square Chapel arts centre, Halifax, on Thursday, February 20.

The choir Cantores will be accompanied by Daniel Bath and will sing music by Pergolesi and Faure.

Also taking part will be soprano soloist Fiona Clark and local vocal duo Due Voci - as well as one or two surprise items.

Bridget said: “We are so lucky to have such a vibrant arts centre in our town centre. As many people will be aware there are to be improvements to the facilities but there is still a little way to go before financial targets for this exciting project are met.”

The programme has been specifically put together for the occasion and will include Pergolesi’s Stabat Mater and a selection of short pieces including the famous Cantique de Jean Racine by Faure.

Tickets at £12/£10 are available from the box office on 01422 349422.
