Argyll Mausoleum Ltd has announce that it is holding a concert on Sunday 4th November to help raise funds for the project.
The acclaimed Strathclyde Harmonia has agreed to perform in the beautiful surroundings of St. Munn’s Church in Kilmun in Cowal, just beside the mausoleum.
Joining the Harmonia will be Dr Frank Barclay, who will perform on the rare water organ of St. Munn’s Church.
Strathclyde Harmonia was formed during the summer of 2010 with the main aim of gathering a group of able singers together to raise funds for charity.
The Choir boasts accomplished singers from different areas of the country who join together in their love of music and singing. They have raised thousands of pounds for deserving charities. It will be a privileged to hear them at St Munn’s following their decision to help the Mausoleum project.
The choir was founded and is led by the well-known singer and classically trained musician, William More, who is currently Organist & Director of Music for St. Mary’s Church in Greenock.
Professor Laurence Dreyfus, Professor and Fellow of Music, Magdalen College, University of Oxford, has said of William More: ‘William displays a confident and tremendous passion for music, not only absorbing the emotion, but exuding it to all who are fortunate enough to hear.’
Strathclyde Harmonia mainly sing unaccompanied, choosing from the wide sacred and secular plethora of music available, and the setting of St. Munn’s will provide the perfect backdrop for the performance. Check out their website in advance, to see a video of some of their performances.
Once you have heard the choir you will certainly want to hear them sing live in the acoustic of St Munn’s.
Tickets are £8 (which includes nibbles) and the concert starts at 3.30pm – doors open at 3.15pm.
