Voices from the Heart
Voices from the Heart was a unique sell-out evening of songs and poems on the themes of love, nature, and human experience, in support of the PF Counselling Service.
Held on Friday 10 May 2013, in St John’s Church, Edinburgh, the concert featured a lovely selection of songs performed by Edinburgh’s Cadenza choir, and poems read by writer and broadcaster Richard Holloway.
The concert was supported by many local people and organisations, who bought tickets, made donations on the night, and made other generous donations.
Total raised: £10,003!
