The young musicians have been rehearsing for weeks to ensure their annual Christmas Concert puts their audience in a generous, festive mood. The concert is being staged to raise funds for Nordoff Robins, the UK’s largest music therapy charity.

The concert, to be held at the Molloy Auditorium on the University’s main Parkgate Road Campus, will feature traditional Christmas tunes as well as music specially arranged for the event – with extra treats in store for the audience as students from the University’s other performing arts clubs and societies add to the Christmas ambience.

There will also be a prize raffle to raise as much money as possible for Nordoff Robins, an organisation dedicated to investigating the impact that music therapy can have for those affected by life-limiting illness, isolation or disability – by taking the benefits of music therapy to as many people as possible.

The University of Chester Orchestral Society’s President, third-year Biology student Amiee Morgan, said: “We are very excited to be holding the Orchestral Society’s 6th annual Christmas concert – Nordoff Robbins is a fantastic charity that we’ve supported every year.

“This year, we’ve worked on new pieces of music for the concert, as well as the traditional carols that the audience can sing along to.

“We have some special guests performing on the night and we hope it will be an enjoyable night that will get everyone in the Christmas spirit.”

Entry to the concert is £4, and doors at the Molloy Auditorium will open at 6.30pm. The concert is expected to start at 7pm.
