‘Hymn Sing’: Chair Stages Singing Events for Charity

Two hymn singing events in aid of charity will take place later this month.

Being organised by the Chair of Mid Ulster District Council, Councillor Paul McLean, each event will feature individual musical artists and singers, as well as the ARCO String Quartet, one of the country’s leading professional and dynamic string quartets with a fine reputation for providing the highest quality musical entertainment.

The events take place on:

  • Thursday 19 May, 7.30pm at Seamus Heaney HomePlace, Bellaghy, with Larissa Young, Nigel Davison and Ryan and Hannah McKee

  • Friday 27 May, 7.30pm at the Burnavon Arts and Cultural Centre, Cookstown, where performances will take place by Sophie McHugh, Marcus and Cherith Leckey and Family of Faith.

Councillor McLean said:

“I have a great love of music and singing, and hymn singing is especially important to me, not only because of the words which bring great encouragement and comfort but also, they are an expression of my Christian Faith.

“Singing together also has a powerful unifying experience for a gathering of people.

“These evenings will bring people together to sing and enjoy beautiful music, with a selection of hymns which will evoke a whole range of emotions.

“I am delighted that so many talented local musicians and singers are participating, and I look forward to welcoming local audiences to all three venues”.

Tickets are £10 and all proceeds will go in their entirety to the three chosen charities Buddy Bear, Special School Dungannon, NI Air Ambulance and NSPCC.
