Thanks to Liam Bonthrone and Friends, Sian Voller, Ellen Mawhinney, Charlotte Heslop, Connor James Smith, Craig Douglas, Will Frost, and David Todd for a splendid evening of songs from lieder, opera, Scots Song and the shows.
The proceeds came from one of series of concerts that Liam is planning to give in aid of the charity which supports needy families by funding their children’s attendance at weekly orchestras and music groups as well as making it possible for them to attend music camps. Liam, who studied in Perth with Mrs Edna Auld, is now a student at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland (RCS) and is looking forward to furthering his studies with the Dutch tenor Amand Hekkers, in the Netherlands, later this year.
Receiving the cheque on behalf of PKMF, Mr Andrew Mitchell (trustee) said, “It is a great pleasure to see young people supporting other youngsters, not only by allowing them to discover the joys of music, but also to develop their skills to the fullest. Liam is a terrific role model having only recently benefited from the work of the local Music Service he is eager to make it possible for others to do the same.”
Liam’s next concert in support of PKMF will be in St John’s Kirk, Perth on Saturday 25th March, at 7.30pm when he will be joined by six highly talented RCS students for an evening entitled ‘Spring Voices’.
Tickets are £10 (adults) and £5 (children and students).
