A CONCERT held at Symphony Hall by Dorridge Music School has raised over £600 for the Acorns Children’s Hospice.
MORE than 300 students took part in the event - which was staged at the Birmingham venue in the autumn. Now the school has counted all the money that was raised from programme sales and is delighted to have raised a handsome sum for the local kids’ charity.
Proceeds from the school’s annual concert go to a different charity each year - last time the money went to Marie Curie Cancer Care.
A spokeswoman for Dorridge Music School said: “It was a wonderful experience for everyone who was involved in the concert and I think the children were privileged to perform in a venue of that size. We’ve handed the money to Acorns and this week we received a very nice “thank you” letter.”
The school has arranged another concert at Symphony Hall, although this will not take place until March 2010 - it takes twelve months to prepare for a concert of this scale.
