Intermusica announces charity concert12:23, 12th September 2017
London-based artist management agency Intermusica is to give a charity concert in support of Pelican Cancer Foundation.
The concert will take place at 7pm on 26 September in St James’ Church, Islington.
Intermusica staff past and present will be joined by friends (and possibly even some of the agency’s artists) for the 90-minute performance, with all proceeds going to the Pelican Cancer Foundation.
The Pelican Cancer Foundation is a Basingstoke-based charity founded in 1993 to promote the work of Professor Bill Heald in the development of bowel cancer surgery. The charity now focuses on a range of below-the-belt cancers, delivering courses and workshops for cancer specialists and supporting medical research through providing fellowships and funding studies.
Intermusica began fundraising for Pelican in summer 2016, when one of its mezzo-sopranos, Pamela Helen Stephen, was diagnosed with cancer. The agency has since raised over £9,700 through a number of fundraising initiatives.
A spokesperson from Pelican said: ‘We are extremely grateful for all of Intermusica’s continuing support and enthusiasm towards Pelican Cancer Foundation. The money raised from this wonderful concert will go towards important ongoing research into bowel cancer. It costs up to £5,000 to seed fund a clinical research trial, or £157 for a genetic test for advanced cancer – this could influence and change the way we treat below-the-belt cancers in the future.’
The concert programme will be confirmed on Intermusica’s website in due course, but will be a mixture of solo, chamber, orchestral and choral works. Wine and refreshments will be available.
Tickets can be purchased on Eventbrite for a suggested donation of £10 or minimum donation of £5.
