Another £2000+ raised for charity

Cadenza performs concerts on behalf of charities as part of our choir year. These typically take place in Spring, and allow us to show off a lighter side of our repertoire while raising funds for deserving causes. 2019 was no exception, and across two concerts – one in Edinburgh, the other in Athelstaneford in East Lothian – we raised over £2000 split across four separate charities. If you’d like Cadenza to make a real impact to your fundraising, please get in touch!
