At this year's Lord Provost’s Charitable Trust Concert, held on the 20th of February, hundreds of music lovers were treated to an amazing performance by the world-famous singer Katherine Jenkins OBE.
The Welsh-born lyric mezzo soprano visited Aberdeen’s His Majesty’s Theatre for the one-off show, delighting a near sell-out crowd and was supported by the Aberdeen-based chamber choir, Con Anima and Zoe Hodi, a 15 year old violinist at the Aberdeen Music School.
Sponsored by BP, the event was organised by the Lord Provost’s Charitable Trust, which chose Scottish social care charity Cornerstone as the beneficiary of the concert. The concert raised a magnificent £30,000.
Edel Harris, chief executive of Cornerstone, said: “We are very grateful to the Lord Provost’s Charitable Trust for choosing Cornerstone as the beneficiary of what was a fantastic night, and to BP for sponsoring this special concert.
“The £30,000 raised will be a tremendous support to our work providing specialist services for adults, young people and children across the North-east who have learning disabilities, physical disabilities and other complex support needs.”
Lord Provost George Adam said: “This was a very special one-off concert for the Lord Provost’s Charitable Trust and I am delighted that so much money was raised for Cornerstone, through ticket sales and additional generous donations on the night.”
