Congratulations to Alan for a successful ascent of Scafell Pike on 23rd July and for raising around £1500 in sponsorship. There's still time to pledge your support for Alan's climb – simply contact us or visit the Sheffield Oratorio Chorus page on Charity Choice.
In July 2014, our Musical Director, Alan Eost, will make an ascent of Scafell Pike in the Lake District to raise funds for our forthcoming Verdi Requiem concert.
Alan is a keen walker and is a regular participant in Chorus walking trips in the Peak District and beyond. He will join a trained guide for the Scafell Pike climb and Chorus members will form a support team on the day.
We're delighted that supporters have already pledged nearly £1,500 towards the appeal, which will help us to cover the costs of staging this dramatic and moving work on the eve of Remembrance Day in this WWI centenary year.
If you'd like to sponsor Alan's ascent you can do so through a chorus member or by visiting the Sheffield Oratorio Chorus page on Charity Choice and clicking on 'Donate now'. If you would like more information about either the appeal or the concert then please do contact us.
