REFUGEES in Poland will be able to tune into a special charity concert in North Berwick on Saturday.

Opera East Lothian is performing Karl Jenkins’ The Armed Man: A Mass for Peace at St Andrew Blackadder Church.

The county group has teamed up with two charities, poppyscotland and MICAH, for the concert.

MICAH aims to help families and relieve poverty.

Jess Davidson, chair of Opera East Lothian, thanked people for supporting a previous concert which raised money for field hospitals in Ukraine.

She said: “On this outing, we are hoping to make a live link to some of the women and children that MICAH support who are refugees in Warsaw. Connection to music and hope is everything. We are keen to perform beautiful music to keep these connections between all of us live and vibrant.

“Our members want to reach out to the people of East Lothian with beautiful music from Jenkins and Barber in particular.”

The concert, which features a full choir and a 21-piece orchestra of professional musicians, starts at 7.30pm.

Representatives of MICAH will attend the concert.

Tickets are a suggested donation of £16, free for children, and available in advance from Greens & Blues on North Berwick High Street, from choir members, or on the door.
