Sheffield University students make music for Sheffield Children's Hospital

image of Music Management StudentsStudents from Sheffield University’s Music and Management Schools raised money for The Children’s Hospital, Sheffield, when they promoted a concert at St. Mark’s Church, Broomhill, on Saturday May 12th featuring another Sheffield based organization, the Albion Choir.

The Choir, formed and conducted by one of the students involved, Fraser Wilson, performed popular favourites such as ‘Jerusalem’ in rich arrangements by Fraser himself. He was pleased with the success of the concert: ‘This was the Albion Choir’s first concert in Sheffield and we could not have wished for a happier debut.’

Over 100 people attended the concert, which was sponsored by the Three corners of China Restaurant, Sushi Express, Jesus Centre and CRQ Editions. The profit from the students’ fund-raising effort totaled £283. This was presented to The Children’s Hospital Charity at the end of the group’s final class on last Thursday, May 17th. Tchad Western, a fundraiser at the charity, commented ‘We are very grateful for the students’ efforts, which is a fine example of university and community working together in Sheffield for mutual benefit.’
