A 17-year-old music student is staging a choral concert in a bid to raise funds for a number of charities, including Preston’s Space Centre.

Clark Brydon, a music student and organ scholar at Kirkham Grammar School, Preston, formed a choir, Cantabimus, especially for the concert at Preston Minster.

Clark said: “A few weeks before this academic year began, I had an idea to create a choir and put on a concert music for charity.

“Fearing this to be one of my numerous ideas that I don’t actually follow through, I got to work on it right away.”

All of the money raised from the concert on November 28 will be shared between The Space Centre, The Salvation Army, Streetlife in Blackpool and the RNLI.

The hiring of the venue has been funded by pledges from the choir members.

Clark said: “I am an avid fan of John Rutter’s music – especially his Christmas carols – so I thought that it was only proper to perform a concert of his pieces.

“We are very much looking forward to the concert and I hope there will be a great turnout.

“After all, what we are doing is to support good causes.”

He added: “Under 16s are allowed free admittance at all times as I am a fan of advocating choral music for the younger generation - being one myself!”
