Live Music Now North West
Menuhin Centenary Showcase Concert
Saturday 24 September, 7.30pm
Royal Northern College of Music, Manchester
Join us for an evening of great music to mark the centenary year of Live Music Now's founder, Yehudi Menuhin.
LMN's North West branch presents a special concert featuring performances by current ensembles Slidin’ About (trombone quartet), Meridiem (flute and harp), Project Jam Sandwich (world music) and Kathryn Williams (solo flute), and LMN alumni Rob Buckland (saxophone) and Simone Rebello (percussion).
Legendary violinist Yehudi Menuhin founded Live Music Now in 1977 with the dual aim of bringing live music to people who need it most and providing paid performance opportunities to young musicians at the start of their careers. Today, LMN selects and trains exceptional musicians to work in a range of challenging settings, such as care homes, hospitals and special schools, reaching over 120,000 people in the UK each year.
Tickets £10 (£3 for students) available from Royal Northern College of Music Box Office

"Being an LMN performer at such a formative time in my early career was without a doubt THE single most important experience of my musical life. To have to re-evaluate everything I thought I knew, and learn to really connect and communicate with audiences took my playing and performing to completely new levels. I have taken the life and musical skills I developed during that wonderful time into every area of the music industry I've worked in ever since. I am proud to be an Ambassador for this wonderful organisation, and delighted to perform as part of this celebratory event today. Thank you to LMN for making me the musician I am today." Rob Buckland, LMN alumnus, saxophone
"Live Music Now has been a real asset to my experiences as a musician, offering me the opportunity to use my skills to communicate with audiences who are typically more difficult to reach - from a residency in a children's cancer ward to performing to an entire school of children with special needs. The support and opportunities LMN have provided have really helped my confidence as a performer and shown me how to use music more creatively within challenging settings." Delia Stevens, LMN musician with Project Jam Sandwich
