Southport Orchestra Concert

Roof Raisers Event

Southport Orchestra - Concert on 2 March 2013

At the Salvation Army Citadel

“A Musical Soirée”

The Southport Orchestra certainly raised the roof for St John’s Ainsdale Parish Church at a concert given to assist the Church’s Development Fund ; what a great opening piece - Franz von Suppé’s Poet and Peasant Overture!

The Church building is currently closed with all services being held in the Parish Hall awaiting sufficient funds to replace the roof and reorder the inside of the Church.

The orchestra performed a varied programme of well and lesser known pieces to a packed house; the “full house” signs were up for the concert and regrettably there were some disappointed ticketless people who were turned away at the door.

An enjoyable evening was experienced by all and the Orchestra were able to donate £1,000 to St John’s Church, Ainsdale as a result of their hard efforts.

The Reverend Graham Birch thanked all involved both in the orchestra and at the Citadel for their kindness and support for the Church.

The idea for the evening’s concert came from an orchestra member who formerly attended St John’s.
