We have organised a special lunchtime concert in celebration of Andrew Carter’s 80th birthday.

Where will the concert be held?

The concert will be held at Huddersfield Town Hall on Monday 2 December at 1pm.

Andrew’s contribution to the musical life of Yorkshire

Composer, choral director, singer, teacher and bell-ringer, Andrew Carter’s contribution to the musical life of Yorkshire is boundless, and his choral works have been performed all over the world.

What can you expect?

In celebration of the milestone birthday Borough Organist, Gordon Stewart, will be joined by the Hallé Orchestra’s trumpeter Tom Osborne to perform Petite Suite. Gordon will play the pieces written to celebrate Francis Jackson’s 90th and 100th birthdays, and will be joined by Andrew’s daughter, Elinor, to perform three new songs for voice and piano which Andrew has written specially for the occasion.

Carter came to Leeds University to study in 1958 and spent the rest of his life in Yorkshire. Moving to York he joined the Minster Choir and whilst there founded the award-winning Chapter House Choir.
