Oranmore Soprano Helen Hancock is delighted to present a virtual evening of opera, oratorio, chamber music and festive favourites in aid of Galway Simon Community. The exclusive performance will be filmed from the beautiful surroundings of Armorica restaurant in Oranmore, and exclusively available to view from the comfort of your own home on Saturday 05 December at 7.30pm. The program, which will appeal to a broad audience, is set to feature sacred and opera music by Handel, Bach and Mozart, excerpts from Mozart string quartets KV157 and KV172 and Christmas favourites.
Speaking about the event, Amy Lavelle, Community & Youth Partnership Coordinator with Galway Simon explains how they have never been more reliant on support like this to safeguard their essential services. “We are absolutely delighted to be the chosen beneficiary for this wonderfully festive event. In addition to the huge challenges of the pandemic across our Homelessness Prevention and Housing Services, our fundraising has also been significantly impacted as our much-loved events and collections can’t go ahead as planned. We’re deeply grateful to supporters like Helen, and all those involved in this event, for continuing to find innovative ways to raise vital funds in support of those facing homelessness during these difficult times.”
