The DMS Heart of England Music Academy is dedicating the concert it is holding in Birmingham’s Symphony Hall on Sunday, the 4th of October, to one of its students who died this year. The music and dance concert will be held in memory of its late student Ulrika Dandekar, who died in January of anaplastic large cell lymphoma at the age of twenty-one. Some of the money raised at the concert will be donated to Delete Blood Cancer UK, as Ulrika had encouraged people to register before she died.
Money from the concert will also be donated to Birmingham Dogs Home and the healthcare charity Kissing it Better. The concert will have choirs, dancers and over three hundred musicians taking part. It will span the genres, from Rock to Classical, and will have special guest appearances from ELO drummer Bev Bevan and Angelo Starr, brother of Motown legend Edwin Starr. Up and coming opera singer Faith Turner, the Town Hall Gospel Choir and a Rat Pack tribute act will also be performing.
The concert starts at 7pm and tickets are priced at £12.50/ £15.50/ £18.50 and can be purchased at: www.thsh.co.uk
