Members of St Wulfram’s church and senior choirs will perform in the St Wulfram’s Charity Youth Concert on September 19 from 7pm to 8pm, raising funds for the Philip Lank Trust.

Founded in 2008 and named after the former organist of St Wulfram’s church, the trust supports the development of secular organ and choral music in Grantham and the surrounding area.

The concert will be a celebration of chamber, choral, folk, film and organ music.

Jake Muffett will be singing accompanied by the Trinity Laban Conservatoire Ensemble.

Choral music will be provided by the Bishop and Dean’s award choristers of St Wulfram’s and senior choirs.

Folk music will be provided by the Chapel Hill Duo (Sarah James and Jaya Hanley), from their recently released album Skylines.

There will also be folk compositions from members of the Trinity Laban Conservatoire Ensemble, who will also be performing music from the film “How to Train Your Dragon” and T.V show “Game of Thrones”.

Organ music will be provided by Joseph Beech.

Anita James from the trust said: “The trust has subsidised the cost of young singers going on Cathedral visits, so that no one is excluded on financial grounds. It has also supported the tuition of young organists, and provided support for the purchase of music and robes.

“There is an on-going demand to provide support for the cathedral visits to Norwich in October 2015 and during its proposed trip to Canterbury and Abbeville in France to visit the relics of St Wulfram on October 2016.

“Other projects for which funding needs to be raised include starting some new young people on organ tuition and purchasing more robes for the new intake of choristers that will come at the start of this next school year.”

Tickets cost £8 for adults and £5 concessions and can be purchased at the door or from the parish office, contact Anita James 07507727191 or anitajamesalto@hotmail.com

Primary school children may enter free of charge.

Raffle and refreshments will be available during the interval.
