At our Summer Concert we were delighted to hand over a cheque for £28,990 from this year’s fundraising.

John Pomphrey, conductor of the St Ann’s Hospice Festival Choir, talks exclusively about how music touches the lives of so many at St Ann’s.
St Ann’s Festival Choir is a force to be reckoned with, raising more than £500,000 for the Hospice since it began in 1991. It’s a career that includes two performances on the inaugural Songs of Praise, partnerships with the BBC Philharmonic and Hallé Orchestras, concerts in Manchester’s magnificent Cathedral and a Christmas album. It can also boast the first live broadcast from The Bridgewater Hall. Co-founder, conductor and choral master, John Pomphrey, talks to Belinda Hanks exclusively about how music touches the lives of so many at St Ann’s.
