St Ambrose Parish at 60

St Ambrose Parish at 60

A concert took place at St Ambrose church, Speke, Liverpool  on 26th July 2013.  The event celebrated the 60thAnniversary of St Ambrose Parish and was organised by Mersey Wave Music with the support of St Ambrose and St Christopher’s Parish Priest Fr Ed Cain and the parishioners in Speke. The Lord Mayor of Hale, Freeman Brian Hargreaves was in attendance and the evening included beautiful performances from the ladies and gentlemen of the Mersey Wave Choirs under the direction of Jason Ellis and also from Owen Roberts on the piano.

I was thrilled to perform at the concert and to sing with the choir.   We invited the audience to 'sing-a-long' during the second half and they raised the roof on the beautiful Grade II listed building. (…and it's a very high roof!!)

Funds raised from the evening supported the Speke Catholic Youth fund and future Mersey Wave Music events.

Mersey Wave Music is a non-profit Community Arts Outreach based in Liverpool.  Providing Live music performance, education and development opportunities for our local music groups and individuals.  Creating music making opportunities and championing the work of performers who share a common vision for the benefit of the local community and the surrounding areas.

There was a wonderful atmosphere throughout  - with thanks to everyone that contributed and supported the event.

I loved it and can’t wait to sing at the Mersey Wave Christmas Concert which takes place on Friday 6th December 2013 at St Ambrose Church.
