A group of more than twenty Sydney lawyers will swap the courtroom for classical music as they perform masterpieces from the likes of Andrew Lloyd Webber and Pietro Mascagni during a special free concert to raise funds for Save the Children’s Fiji cyclone appeal.

Led by Corrs’ (an Australian law firm) partner Thomas Jones, a former full-time professional violinist and a trained conductor, the Sydney Lawyers Orchestra will perform four pieces in the spectacular St Stephen’s Uniting Church on May 23.

JONES: “This must-see lunchtime concert will feature music by some of the great composers, with all proceeds going to help our Fijian neighbours who were affected by Cyclone Winston in February…Being a close neighbour to Australia, many of us have enjoyed the warmth and hospitality of the Fijian people.  Now it’s time for us to give back and help do what we can after such a devastating loss.”

The lunchtime concert is free to the public, and will be held at 1.15pm on Monday May 23 at Ferguson Hall, St Stephen’s Uniting Church. Audience members will be given the opportunity to donate to Save the Children’s Cyclone Winston Appeal on the day.
