News from around the Archdiocese of Liverpool
Mersey Wave Music was founded in 2012 by St Ambrose parishioner and professional opera singer Kathryn Rudge and the choir’s musical director/pianist Jason Ellis to create an opportunity for the local community to participate in live music events.
The concerts have now been popular at St Ambrose Church for the past six years. The St Ambrose Summer Concert 2018 takes place on Friday 6 July 2018 and will include performances from the Mersey Wave Choir and Young Singers aged 7-19 years and Kathryn also performs as soloist on the evening.
Mezzo-Soprano Kathryn Rudge said ‘I first began singing at St. Ambrose when I was 7 years old with Parish Priest, Father Ed Cain, and I still love singing there at weekly masses when I am back home in Liverpool. There is always such a great atmosphere at the concerts at St Ambrose and it is always so exciting to welcome new audience members into the beautiful church, I feel very privileged to be a part of it all. We are so grateful to Father Ed for all of his support in enabling us to bring together so many people to take part and enjoy live music being made in the church.’
The Mersey Wave family events offer people from the local community the opportunity to enjoy a wide range of music from opera arias and musical theatre to pop songs. All of the funds raised go back into future community music activities and also to St Ambrose to support their Youth activities including the Lourdes Pilgrimage.
The annual Mersey Wave Summer Concert will take place at 7.00 pm Friday 6 July at St Ambrose Church, Speke. Tickets are available on the door, pre-book Tel: 0151-558-1255 or online at www.merseywavemusic.com
