Rowans Hospice, in conjunction with Portsmouth Cathedral Choir and The Renaissance Choir, is hosting a Christmas Concert by Candlelight on Saturday 8 December to celebrate 25 years of the Hospice and raise money for its Silver Jubilee Appeal – an ambitious capital appeal to raise £7.5m to redevelop the hospice building to ensure it is fit for future care.
The concert programme will include beautifully written music from the 17th to the 21st century and carols to celebrate the festive season. The feast of seasonal music will include Renaissance motets by Victoria and Lassus, settings by Pearsall and Sargent, as well as modern works by composers such as Rutter and Chilcott. There will be old favourites including Tavener’s “The Lamb” and “O come all ye faithful”.
Limited tickets are still available for this concert from the Rowans Silver Jubilee website.
Rowans Hospice Silver Jubilee Appeal is an ambitious capital appeal project in 3 phases that will improve the overall experience for patients, families and carers. Phase 1 of the project will involve a complete renovation of the hospice building including bringing patients rooms up to date with modern technology and design elements and improving communal areas. This work will ensure that the hospice can continue to deliver outstanding care for the next 25 years and beyond.
