Catrin Finch, one of the most accomplished harpists of her generation will be showing her support for hospice care and taking to the stage in a one-off concert to celebrate 20 years of care at St David’s Hospice.
On Saturday 23rd November, Llandudno’s Holy Trinity Church will be filled with the beautiful sounds of critically acclaimed harpist and the harmonious voices of Côr Meibion Colwyn and Côr Glanaethwy.
A former Royal Harpist to H.R.H. the Prince of Wales, she has been delighting audiences with her performances across the UK and worldwide, since the age of five both as a soloist, and appearing with many of the world’s top orchestras.
Catrin, who recently won a BBC Radio 2 Folk Award for her collaboration with Seckou Keita, is delighted to support St David’s Hospice. She said:
“As a performer, I believe it is important we dedicate our time to charity and take the opportunities to help where we can. It is important to put the time and effort into causes that we all may need one day.
“Performing for St David’s Hospice is special to me following what I went through last year with my cancer diagnosis. I, fortunately, didn’t have the need to use St David’s Hospice’s services, but it puts it into perspective that anything could happen to anyone at any time.
“I realise that we need the services of hospices more than ever and that’s why I value the opportunity to help.
“The concert itself will be a celebration of the Hospice’s 20 years in providing care in North Wales and I believe the crowds will be in the mood to celebrate, which makes me even more excited to perform in Llandudno in November. I think that a concert for a cause will always be special.”
On the night, Catrin will be performing a mix of classic compositions based on her own inspirations. There will be songs that people will be familiar with and will have heard before, plus original pieces such as her track ‘Clear Sky’.
The fundraising concert starts at 7.30pm. Tickets are priced at £20 for adults (£10 for child tickets) and are available from the website here or by calling the Fundraising Office on 01492 873664.
