The close harmonies and melodic tones generated by one of Belfast’s top male voice choirs aims to raise the roof – and vital funds for the NI Children’s Hospice – at a headline show at The Waterfront Hall complex on the 8th June.

The Lagan Seahorses, a 50-strong group of local business men has been supported by local tech company, Neueda as part of the its bi-annual fundraising bid.

Under the leadership of Musical Directors, Melissa Murray and Audrey Gillian the cross-community choir will bring a sense of nostalgia to the Waterfront’s BT Studio with a repertoire of music from across the decades.

“We’re thrilled to be back at The Waterfront’s BT Studio and our members have been investing a lot of time and energy into the rehearsals,” said Audrey.  “The NI Children’s Hospice is such an important charity, and everyone is totally focused on making this an engaging and memorable night for all.”

Paddy O’Hagan, Neueda COO added: “We’re delighted to sponsor the Lagan Sea Horses choir for its third Waterfront concert. We have close connections with several members of the choir and a long-standing relationship with the NI Children's Hospice, a fantastic charity that does amazing work for local families and children. We’re looking forward to a great night which will raise much needed funds for this very deserving charity.”

All funds raised will benefit the work of the NI Children’s Hospice which provides specialist round-the-clock care to children living with terminal illness as well as supporting their families.

Tickets are on sale from the Waterfront Box Office priced at £12.50.
