    Story

    Thank you to everyone who has joined us at the Home Concerts. Way back in March 2020 we set out to bring friends and neighbours together while supporting musicians. Our last concert was in July 2021. The opportunities to share varied and wonderful music with fellow music lovers was uplifting. Music is precious - Thank you to the musicians, audience members and friends who made the 26 Home Concerts happen.

    Home Concert Club was set up in March 2020, at the start of the coronavirus lockdown. All around us, musicians were having concerts and tours cancelled, their working lives suddenly swept from under their feet. At the same time our friends, families and members of our community had lost opportunities to share live musical experiences.

    Julie Schwarz’s initial idea for concerts online, performed in musicians’ own homes and transmitted over the internet to the homes of audience members, was developed by her, along with Barbara Bleiman and Adam Sharples. Violinist, Gemma Sharples, agreed to be the musical force behind the project, curating the series for us. She was also one of the performers at our first concert.

    Our aims are:

    – to offer audiences an experience of live music, in a world where concert halls and theatres have had to close.

    – to provide paid opportunities for musicians to perform live;

    – to provide technical support for the musicians to get the best out of an online performance.

    – When funds allow, to donate to Help Musicians UK Hardship Fund.

      Alena Walentin and Niklas Johnasen formed a flute and guitar duo last year. As venues have begun opening up Alena and Niklas have found they are in demand. The Home Concert Club audience was very fortunate to be able to share a live Zoom performance transmitted from Denmark, the day before the pair headed to Ireland.

      On Wednesday we had a terrific Summer concert. Mainly Two couple Marie Scheer and John Garner have been playing as a duo since 2013. I am certainly hoping to see them perform in concert in the coming months. They also have a You Tube channel of online performances they made over the last 15 months.

      Ruth Rogers and Martin Cousin's performance was nothing short of brilliant. Oh to be Ruth's neighbour! Live music is returning, but we hope their will always be space for Home to Home live performances.

    Throughout my career as a charity finance professional I have been lucky to see the positive differences people can make in each other's lives. I am helping Gemma Sharples and her friends to share their talents with their community. We hope everyone involved will be uplifted.
