Bromley choir, the Sine Nomine Singers, will contribute a portion of the proceeds from their next concert to the We Love MCR Emergency Fund, the group has announced.

This fund, co-run by Manchester City Council and the Red Cross, provides support to the 512 people injured or bereaved by the bomb at an Ariana Grande concert last year.

The concert, on Saturday March 10, features music from across a millennium, all written by composers whose names begin with the letter “B”, from Hildegard von Bingen to David Bednall.

James Loader, from the choir, said: “The bee is the heraldic symbol of the city of Manchester, so it seemed entirely appropriate for us to support the fund.”

The choir, whose members mainly hail from Croydon and Bromley, will also sing works by Bach, Brahms, Bruckner, Bartók, and others, including, appropriately enough, Frank Bridge’s “The Bee”.

The concert is at 7.30pm on Saturday, March 10 at St. George’s Church, Bickley.

Tickets cost £10 (£5 for under 16s and job seekers) and can be bought at www.wegottickets.com/theukulele.
