We are delighted to report that our Music for Good at the Guildhall was not only a superb evening full of great music but also raised £487 for the Lord Mayor’s charities: St Nicks, York Racial Equality Network, York LGBT Forum and York Civic Trust. More than 80 people attended the concert and we ran out of programmes on the night so if you missed out on one, you can donwload a copy here. Below you can watch a video of one of the pieces composed and played by David Hammond, and see some more pictures by Lewis Outing.
We would like to thank all those who supported the event in any way but a special big thank you goes to:
The musicians: Lucy Jubb – Soprano, Catherine Strachan – Cello, Charlotte Pugh – Treble Recorder and David Hammond – Piano. They all gave brilliant performances and chose music with links to all the charities. There were pieces by York composers, music which uses the natural world as its theme, works written by composers from varying racial backgrounds and from the LGBTQ community. It was a truly eclectic programme to reflect on music being an art form that brings people together, and often crosses borders and communities without a thought.
