The 2019 Massed Bands Charity Concert takes place this Friday October 11th at 8pm at The Sacred Heart Church the Folly.
Waterford’s Marching, Concert, Brass, Bagpipe and Fife & Drum Bands will unite as one aided by The Waterford String Ensemble, Waterford’s Finest and World Class Singers Donna Roche and David Flynn and some wonderful guest musicians under Musical Direction of Mark Fitzgerald will rubber stamp our affectionately known City Of Music tag that is so appropriate for this spectacular musical roller coaster.
One of the highlights of the evening is when the music takes a back seat and someone in our audience will receive the 2019 Waterford City Massed Band Lifetime Achievement Award for outstanding contribution to Waterford’s Arts, Heritage and Culture.
Charities who will benefit from this year’s conert are:
- The Waterford Women’s Support Network;
- COPD Support Group Waterford and
- The Waterford Helping Hand.
Tickets selling rapidly priced at an incredible 10 Euro can be got from Menders Colbeck Street Waterford, Cahill’s Newsagent, Main Street, Tramore, Co Waterford and members of participating bands and Charities.
Patrons advised to please come early as a capacity audience is expected and the Charity Concert never fails to sell out.
