THE fifth Cornucopia concert this Saturday (June 17) in Malmesbury Abbey features one of the performers who was involved in the first concert back in 1993, singer Helen Kucharek.

The concert in Malmesbury Town Hall will support the Athelstan Museum in refurbishing the Moravian Church in the town.

Helen Kucharek, who teaches at Westonbirt School, sang with the English National Opera and New Sadler’s Well Opera, and was a regular guest on Friday Night is Music Night on Radio 2. She will be accompanied by pianist John Hughes.

The Minnuettes, an acapella singing group formed by nine women from Malmesbury and Luckington, are also performing, as is Tilly Carlton-Hunt, one of Ms Kucharek's pupils, Lily Peers-Dent, a sixth former at Malmesbury Academy, and three musically talented local sisters, Christine, 15, Charlene, 12, and Clareece, 10. The older girls now attend Stroud Grammar School and Clareece is still a pupil at Malmesbury Primary School.

The Riverside Wind Band, created by Steph Kenny, will also be there. The band was formed in March to encourage young people to come together to make music in a relaxed environment. The band hopes to grow in size and aims to raise funds for other local charities.

Tickets for adults will be £5 and tickets for children will be £2.50, available on the door.
