CONCERT CANCELLATION - Saturday 27 November
Worcester Festival Choral Society’s comeback concert cancelled after storm damage at Worcester Cathedral
Worcester Festival Choral Society’s planned concert on Saturday 27 November, 7.30pm at Worcester Cathedral has had to be cancelled due to overnight storm damage sustained by the Cathedral during Storm Arwen.
Worcester Festival Choral Society was to have performed a programme of much-loved works by Mozart and Fauré. The concert, which was almost sold out with more than 500 tickets sold, would have been the Society’s first performance for almost two years and the opener to its historic 160th anniversary season.
All ticket purchasers are being contacted regarding refunds.
The Cathedral is also closed to visitors today.
Ben Cooper, Worcester Festival Choral Society chairman, said: “We are deeply disappointed that this has unexpected event has happened, especially as it would have been our first post-pandemic concert, and so many music lovers wanted to attend! But everyone’s safety is paramount and it’s vital to take this precautionary measure. We wish the Cathedral staff well at this difficult time, and hope that the Cathedral is back to normal very soon.”
Concert-goers can find more details on Worcester Festival Choral Society’s website www.wfcs.online, and on its Facebook page. Updates from Worcester Cathedral can also be found on its Facebook page.
