Clacton Charity Concert Raises Funds To Help Stroke Survivors

AN orchestra in Clacton has donated the proceeds of its first concert of the year to a charity for stroke survivors.

 

Clacton Concert Orchestra held a Spring Showcase Concert in March at Holland on sea Public Hall, conducted by David Rowland who also conducts Essex Police Band.

 

It was the first concert of 2022 for the orchestra and included pieces such as The Capriol Suite, Liberty Bell, Ashoken Farewell and Radetsky March.

 

The concert was also the second concert organised by the newly appointed chairman, Hannah Speck.

 

Hannah said “It was so pleasing to see people enjoying music again after the pandemic. It was such a positive experience to see hands-on how the money will benefit members of the local community”.

 

Hannah Speck was invited to Tendring Specialist Stroke Services to present a cheque for £100 at their Easter Raffle on 13th April.

 

The next concert for Clacton Concert Orchestra is a Queens Platinum Jubilee Concert at the Princess Theatre in Clacton on May 29.

 

The specially chosen music will feature much loved pieces of the Queen including the musical Oklahoma and British classics including Rule Britannia, Jerusalem and Land of Hope and Glory.

 

Local singer and performer, Tessa Collitt will also perform favourites to get the audience singing along. The concert will be a ‘cafe style’ allowing the audience to sit and enjoy refreshments at tables whilst soaking up the music.

 

Tickets for the concert are available from the Princess Theatre box office at £12 per person including refreshments.
