The Leeds University Union Music Societyorganised an amazing charity concert in aid of the Leeds Children’s Charity earlier this year and raised a fantastic amount of £2,600.
This wonderful concert featured a variety of both classical and contemporary music for both instrument and voice, with performances by pupils from local secondary schools, as well as LUUMS Symphony Orchestra, Symphonic Wind Orchestra, Choir and Chamber Choir. The repertoire included: John Adams’ ‘Short Ride in a Fast Machine’, Samuel Hazo’s ‘Rush’ and Mars, Jupiter and Neptune from Holst’s ‘The Planets’ as well as an exciting finale involving a collaboration between all performers. The involvement of school pupils in the annual charity event was a new innovation for 2011. LUUMS musician Thomas Evans said “We’re hoping the collaboration will help bring a wider musical knowledge to children while raising funds for a worthy cause.”
Alistair Little, LUUMS President at the time of the concert, said that it was a wonderful experience and an honour to perform in aid of the Leeds Children’s Charity.
I would like to thank all the students who were involved in the organisation, the excellent musicians who performed so well, and everyone who worked really hard to achieve such a fabulous result.
