The Great Hall - University of Exeter

A superb selection of music, in aid of FORCE Cancer Charity

Classics Galore will be back on Saturday 18th November 2017 with a performance in the Great Hall at Exeter University. This will be the sixth concert organised to raise funds for the Force Cancer Charity.

As well as providing superb entertainment, Classics Galore has now raised in excess of £69,500. These vital funds have made a significant contribution to the work of Force – a local cancer charity which directly supports people in our community.

The programme for this year’s gala concert will feature a mixture of popular classics, music from films and musicals such as Dambusters March, Hallelujah Chorus, Live and Let Die, extracts from Les Misérables -truly something for everyone.

The evening will end with a rousing Last Night of the Proms style finale, led by soprano soloist Penny Daw.    There will be up to 200 musicians and singers – a full orchestra, two choral societies and a brass band.

Musical director Malcolm Matthews will conduct  the concert with an orchestra featuring top musicians from across Devon, plus singers from  Ottery St Mary Choral Society and  Exeter’s St David’s Players  as well as the SW Comms Band from Lympstone under its new musical director Chris Spreadbury.

Tickets will go on sale from 1 July 2017.

  • The Terrace Restaurant will again be open from 5.15 pm for those who would like a pre-concert meal. No reservations are necessary.

  • Full-size shuttle buses will be provided between Car Parks A/B and the Great Hall from 5 pm to 11 pm for concert patrons.

Tickets for the Grand Prize Draw will be on sale at the concert.
