Mayor’s Charity Concert in Walton – Elmbridge Choirs Will Perform ‘Music With A Heart’
Surrey Music’s sizeable and impressive community choirs will be raising their voices in a charity concert to support homeless and vulnerably housed people across the Borough of Elmbridge.
‘Music with a Heart!’ promises an eclectic programme ranging from toe-tapping pops and spine-tingling ballads from the swinging 60s right through to the 00s, together with rousing anthems and showstoppers from Chess, Chicago, Les Miserables and The Greatest Showman amongst others, and, as usual with Surrey Music’s concerts, the emphasis will be on fun.
The Cobham-based society is well known in the community for staging entertaining and often spectacular concerts, which have raised in excess of £175,000 to date for charitable causes.
Surrey Music’s CEO and Founder Cliff van Tonder, who was recently awarded the British Citizen Award for Services to the Arts, explains, “We were honoured to be asked by the Mayor, Cllr Shweta Kapadia, to perform a concert for her charity and had no hesitation in saying yes! This winter in particular we have all been aware of the plight of rough sleepers, and if we can do something to help the vital work of this fantastic charity then we are very willing and delighted to do so. We can’t think of a more fitting way to demonstrate our commitment than by lending Surrey Music’s own tagline ‘Music with a Heart!’ to this concert.”
Elmbridge Rentstart, whose mission is to ‘Break the cycle of homelessness’, works not just to help people secure housing but also to rebuild their lives. The small team provides support and advice on everything from shopping, bill paying or accessing medical services through to finding and sustaining paid work.
