The issue of human trafficking will be highlighted in Hobart this month when Melbourne-based soprano Merlyn Quaife performs a fundraising concert at St Mary’s Cathedral, on Sunday August 31.
All proceeds from the concert will go to Australian Catholic Religious Against Trafficking in Humans (ACRATH), which works towards the elimination of human trafficking in Australia and internationally.
A distinguished soprano well known throughout Australia and Europe, Quaife will perform pieces from her Fortune My Foe cd, which she recorded to raise funds for ACRATH.
Quaife will be accompanied by Melbourne-based recital pianist Andrea Katz and Andrew Bainbridge from the TSO, who will play organ interlude and prelude.
The concert starts at 2pm and tickets are $20.00, Concession $15.00 and are available at http://www.trybooking.com/94206 or at the door from 1.15pm.
