The renowned Glasgow Philharmonic Male Voice Choir is giving a special concert in aid of the arts programme at the New Victoria Hospital.
Conducted by William Barr with accompaniment by Anna Mavromatidi, the choir is appearing at Battlefield East Church on Thursday, April 22, and will be introduced by Andrew Robertson, Chairman of NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde (NHSGGC).
Jackie Sands, NHSGGC’s Arts and Health Co-ordinator, said: “It's fantastic that the Choir, a real Glasgow institution, are helping us to make the New Victoria hospital environment the best it can be for patients, staff and visitors. We hope that supporters of the Victoria will come out, enjoy the music, and support the New Victoria.”
The choir have planned a repertoire of classics and popular tunes, and conductor Mr Barr said:
“The Glasgow Philharmonic is delighted to take this opportunity to support the arts programme at the New Victoria Hospital.
“We believe that more art on the walls and more music in the public areas of the New Victoria makes a real difference to patients, staff and visitors.
“And this is why the choir is putting its voice behind a drive to make sure that the new hospital is a vibrant and lively place!”
The concert, which includes guest artistes ARIA, will take place between 7.30-9.30 pm and tickets, priced £8, can be purchased at the WRVS Shop in the Victoria Infirmary on Battlefield Road and from the CCA Box Office on 0141 352 4900 (50p booking fee applies).
