Last year a NEW Sounds Collective project saw a collaboration between NEW Sinfonia and The Innocent. You may have seen them perform at the Llangollen Pavilion. Work has started on a studio album celebrating this collaboration, a true reflection on how much both parties enjoyed performing together. With links to both parties, Cantorion Rhos want to help them achieve their goal. Further funding is required to complete this work and we are appealing to you to support this project.
Donations can be made via the following website (please copy the address into the address bar) and further information is available via The Innocent’s Facebook page.
Many thanks for your support.
