Effie Cadwallader, a volunteer from St. Martins will join the Oswestry chamber choir Cantiones, the Oswestry Sinfonia and the Glyndwr University Community Choir for a performance of Mozart’s ‘Requiem” at 7.30pm on Saturday 17th May at Holy Trinity Church, Roft Street, Oswestry.

Effie, a member of the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Choir, will be the soprano soloist. She will also pick up her viola to join the orchestra of which she is also a member for other works in the programme.

Effie, whose soloist’s fee will be donated to local CFR funds, said: “I am delighted to be singing on home ground again, particularly alongside Cantiones of which I am an honorary member. I normally have to cease CFRing at around lunchtime on concert days but I should be able to cover a few more hours that day!”

Community First Responders are volunteers trained by West Midlands Ambulance Service to a nationally recognised level in a variety of assessments and procedures including basic life support and defibrillation.
