On the 28th May, we welcomed an enthusiastic audience back to The Wathen Hall at St Paul’s School for Amber’s Annual Concert 2023. The concert, featuring musical savant Derek Paravicini, showcased the talents of some of Amber’s young musicians.
We were treated to music from Bach, Gershwin, Chopin and Mozart, as well as K.D. Lang, Survivor, Flanders & Swann and some spectacular pieces from well-known musicals.
Not only is the concert an excellent opportunity for our musicians to perform, but it’s also an occasion to meet new friends and make music together. Many of the pieces incorporated accompaniment from other musicians, including Survivor’s Eye of the Tiger, which saw Nikhil on drums, Lily on voice and Ashleigh on the keyboard.
This year’s finale was Fly Me to the Moon, and it was a wonderful collaboration between our accomplished musicians (and the audience, too!).
The atmosphere in the Hall was joyful with such a wide repertoire of music, celebrating the talents and achievements of our young musicians. The concert was a true demonstration of the work we do at The Amber Trust and the values we inhabit, bringing the joy of music to as many blind and partially sighted children and young people as possible.
A big thank you!
We would like to thank our performers who made the day so special, and our volunteers for their support. We would also like to extend our gratitude to the High Master and St Paul’s School for generously allowing us to use the Wathen Hall for our concert, and Tom Smith for his help in making the arrangements.
