The Joanna Leach Memorial Concert 2018, coordinated by the Isca Ensemble, is to aid the ongoing support work of Hospiscare based in Exeter.
The orchestra in recent years has received high critical acclaim and on this occasion, three top class soloists and a large chorus comprising of experienced singers from all over the region will join it under the baton of Roger Hendy. The soloist is the exceptionally gifted violinist, Emmanuel Bach. The large choir will also be augmented by the Maynard School Senior Girls Choir.
The orchestra is a recent winner of a special award by the Oleg Prokofiev Trust. It regularly presents concerts in Sidmouth Parish Church with top class national and international soloists.
It is hoped that the concert will be introduced by Judi Spiers (TV and Radio presenter).
