A Dundee University professor will prove he has plenty more strings to his bow when he conducts a charity concert this weekend.
Professor Andrew Evans will lead Dundee Chamber Orchestra as it raises funds for Roxburghe House. Andrew, a professor of breast imaging at Dundee Medical School, will hope his players hit the right notes when they take to the stage to raise funds for the unit, which provides palliative care for patients in the advanced stages of serious illness.
An honorary consultant radiologist with NHS Tayside, he will lead the orchestra in its third concert in as many years at St Paul’s Cathedral, High Street, on Saturday at 7.30pm, having already raised more than £3,000 for good causes.
“My work at the university has made me fully aware of the devastating impact that conditions such as cancer can have on people’s lives,” said Andrew.
“The work undertaken at Roxburghe House provides great support to many people.
“Previously we have raised funds for Patch and Alzheimer Scotland, and this time we are delighted to be raising funds for such a worthy cause in Dundee.
“I formed the orchestra three years ago and we have a lot of talented musicians, with some travelling from as far afield as Edinburgh to play.
“St Paul’s is a fantastic venue to perform in and we are incredibly lucky that they allow us to rehearse and play free of charge.”
Tickets are available at the door.
