A £1m endowment appeal has been launched to support and develop the work of St Asaph Cathedral Choir. The appeal will provide a legacy to build upon the excellent musical standards and education already provided by the Cathedral.
The appeal is seeking to draw support from a wide range of people associated with the musical and cultural life of Wales, as well as those of us who worship regularly across the diocese.
The appeal is being chaired by the Archdeacon of Montgomery, the Venerable Dr
Peter Pike who is also a Cathedral Canon. He said: “Our choir is very well led and supported and works extremely well with the budget it has. The enthusiasm and skill of the choristers and older members is infectious. However, to maintain these levels, and indeed to improve on them, is very costly, and cannot possibly be maintained through the normal year-on-year income of the cathedral.
“We particularly believe that the musical experiences and education which our choristers receive while they are in the choir are priceless, and that this opportunity needs to be extended to future generations.”
A series of events and concerts are taking place in the Cathedral to raise money for the appeal. You can download a leaflet with further information about the appeal here:
