Clark Brydon, 17, will conduct the performance of John Rutter’s music to raise money for the Salvation Army and Preston’s Space Centre.
Brydon is studying at Kirkham Grammar School and is also a talented organist.
He said: “Since a very young age, I have had an interest in traditional choral singing and I have wanted to pursue my passion for this type of music for a very long time now.
“Before the beginning of this academic year, I decided to sit down and plan out a charity concert featuring a choir, which I would form and train over the subsequent weeks.
“Being an avid fan of John Rutter’s music – especially his Christmas carols – I thought that it was only proper to perform a concert of his pieces. I have been rehearsing in Kirkham at The Willows Church with my choir, Cantabimus, for a few weeks now and have booked the concert venue, Preston Minster. I am very much looking forward to the concert, for which the date is looming, and I hope there will be a great turnout. After all, that’s what we are there doing: supporting good causes.”
The concert takes place on Friday 28 November from 7pm. It is expected to finish around 10pm.
Tickets are £5 in advance and under16s are admitted free. On the night tickets are £8. Advance tickets can be bought from Cantabimus via Eventbrite.
