Rugby Philharmonic Choir supports the Bradby Club for Young People, 1919 - 2019

‘Centenary Countdown’, a celebratory charity concert in aid of the Bradby Club for Young People, 1919-2019

24th March 2018, Temple Speech Room, Rugby School.             

It says a great deal for the spirit and togetherness of Rugby as a town that the Philharmonic Choir, in the year after its own much-acclaimed 150th anniversary, chose to offer the proceeds of one of its three subsequent concerts to a neighbouring charity, the Bradby Club in its centenary. Mervyn Bethell, the musical director, and the committee, and all the performers and hard-working supporters of the ‘Phil’, deserved the warmth and gratitude which were expressed on this evening of generosity.   See more..

Rugby Philharmonic Choir supports the Arnold Foundation

In recognition of the Phil’s 150 years milestone and of the close relationship between the choir and Rugby School, a cheque for 1867.00 was presented to Peter Green,  Headmaster of Rugby School  in aid of a charity which the Phil has supported for some years.
Jonathan Smith, RPC Chair, presents cheque to Peter Green in aid of the Arnold Foundation.
The Arnold Foundation aims to transform the lives of boys and girls from some of the country’s most disadvantaged communities by providing them with a boarding education at the School. It will be noted that the sum involved was not a random figure!
