I’m thrilled to advise I will be hosting The High Sheriff of Hertfordshire’s Charity Concert on Saturday 26th May 2018 in St Albans Cathedral.
The very talented students from Tring Park School for the Performing Arts will be performing an amateur concert version of the much loved musical Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor ® Dreamcoat, with lyrics by Tim Rice and music by Andrew Lloyd Webber,
Joseph celebrates its 50th birthday this year, having been performed over 20,000 times worldwide in both amateur and professional forums.
Joseph is an almost entirely ‘sung through’ telling of the story of Joseph, a colourful character depicted in the Bible’s Book of Genesis. It continues to appeal to audiences of all ages throughout the world and will sound magnificent performed in the beautiful setting of the Cathedral.
It is particularly fitting to focus on the life of Joseph, who was once a slave given one of my themes for the year is Modern Slavery in Hertfordshire.
I had the pleasure of visiting Tring today to see the students rehearsing, alongside the President of the School’s Trust, the Countess of Verulam. We were both mesmerised by the talent on display and I personally can’t wait for them to perform in the Cathedral!
All proceeds from the concert will be shared between St Albans Cathedral and the 'Love Herts' Appeal at Hertfordshire Community Foundation, which helps vulnerable people across Hertfordshire.
I do hope you can join me on the evening. Tickets are still available and can be purchased from the Cathedral Box office or via stalbanscathedral.org
