Friends of Armagh Cathedral 75th anniversary concert

Published 06 August 2013

A special concert is taking place this September to mark the 75th anniversary of the Friends of Armagh Cathedral.

The Lowry Singers will perform at the concert in St Patrick's Church of Ireland Cathedral on 13 September at 7:30pm.

The Friends of Armagh Cathedral was formed in 1938 as a collective of people who care for the ancient foundation of St Patrick and its continuing Christian witness.

The group also assists the Dean and Chapter and the Cathedral Board in maintaining the cathedral for posterity.

Directed by Earl Moffitt, the Lowry Singers, with Elizabeth Ross singing soprano and Phillip Elliott on the organ, will perform music to celebrate the Cathedral's spiritual heritage.

The programme ranges from classics of the sacred choral repertoire to contemporary compositions, interspersed with organ pieces and solo items.

The audience will also join the choir in singing some well known hymns.

Tickets (£10 including refreshments afterwards in the Deanery) are available from committee members, the Cathedral Shop, Armagh Public Library (028 37523142/admin@armaghpubliclibrary.co.uk) or at the door.
