This week saw musicians we help come together for the annual Park House concert. A specially adapted hotel, Park House enables musicians with long term mobility and health issues, along with their companions or carers, to enjoy respite in the Norfolk countryside.
This year’s concert was by classical guitarists the Vickers Bovey Duo. We supported Julian Vickers and Daniel Bovey of the duo in their final year of studies at the Birmingham Conservatoire, and we are grateful to them for playing to the guests.
Following the concert, we caught up with Patricia Lee, a long-term volunteer and friend of Help Musicians UK.
She said: “It’s a performance like that that makes you appreciate the saying…’blown away’, it was the most engaging performance I’ve seen this year”.
The concerts are always greatly loved and are arranged with the hope that the musicians who attend, and can no longer perform, will continue to feel engaged in the world of music.
