Salisbury Cathedral will provide the backdrop to welcome international star Louise Innes as she returns to her birthplace to perform in a concert celebrating St George’s Day.

Also featuring at the Tuesday, April 23 event will be the Salisbury Plain Military Wives Choir, whose husbands are all serving in the Armed Forces. All profits from the concert will go to the Royal British Legion.

Louise, a mezzo-soprano, whose operatic roles have taken her from Covent Garden, London and Royal Opera, Scotland to Paris, Vancouver, Milan, Istanbul and Japan, will be joining the Band of the Coldstream Guards, most notably known for the Changing of the Guard and being the King’s Protection in London.

Producer John Underhill said: “The evening performance will feature music and readings to ensure the audience enjoys the pride of our country in true British style in a venue that is second to none.”

Louise said: “I grew up here and lots of my family and friends live in the surrounding area; Salisbury holds a special place in my heart and to perform in Salisbury Cathedral will be an absolute honour.”

Tickets for the concert will cost between £15 and £45 and are available here.
