To get you in the mood for Christmas on 23 December the Lea Singers give a traditional Charity Christmas Concert, with ‘The Scottish Tenor’ 26-year-old Nicky Spence as special guest.
Nicky’'s debut album My First Love was recorded by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and he has since recorded with Placido Domino and Kiri te Kanawa, and has toured with Bryn Terfel, Katherine Jenkins, Hayley Westenra, Lesley Garrett and Shirley Bassey. As a patron of Help the Aged and a Scottish government spokesman against domestic violence he is no stranger to using music to raise profile for charities.
Grove House Hospice, a day hospice providing free specialist care in St Albans, Harpenden and Dacorum for local people whose lives are affected by cancer is the beneficiary.
