Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page. The trip was 3-13 August. Although past, it still lives as a testament to this great charity.

I have been very fortunate to scale the heights of music mountains such as Hans Sachs in Die Meistersinger, Oppenheimer in Doctor Atomic and also Winterreise, as well as having wonderful new music written for me. It seemed an appropriate moment and a natural choice to take on Kilimanjaro, acknowledging the help of and thanking those colleagues who have aided my musical treks. I know that Help Musicians UK have been key in supporting those who find themselves with temporary challenges. We musicians don't often qualify for straightforward assistance; Help Musicians UK can be there in the tough times. Please help them make a difference to those whose talents need support in difficult circumstances.
