CHICHESTER CONCERT: SATURDAY 2 JUNE 7.30PM
Musicians and singers will use poetry readings, music and song to explore the refugee experience at a coming event.
At In Search of Sanctuary at St Paul’s Parish Centre, accomplished singers, pianists, a violinist, a guitarist, a cellist, a clarinettist and a fiddle player will perform an eclectic range of pieces from classical and pop music to folk and musical theatre, interspersed with poetry.
Admission is free. No ticket or pre-booking required, with all donations going to Sanctuary in Chichester and Portsmouth’s Friends Without Borders which, like Sanctuary, provides support for asylum seekers and refugees.
The June event is being organised by soprano Rebecca Grove, with support from her father Chris Grove and friend mezzo-soprano Stephanie Peat. The concert is the latest in a series of musical fundraisers Rebecca has worked on.
Coffee, tea and light refreshments will be served. Free parking is available outside St Paul’s Church, Churchside, Chichester, PO19 FT6.
