LEIGH’S internationally renowned disability charity The Music Man Project is making an “emotional” return to the Royal Albert Hall.
The multi-award-winning, world record-breaking charity last appeared at the venue in 2019 alongside their charity president, the late Sir David Amess MP.
Now, the group, founded by Disability and Access Ambassador for Arts and Culture David Stanley BEM, will return to the venue on April 8th 2024 for a poignant and joyous concert.
Back in 2019, Sir David, who was tragically killed in October 2021, was at the venue to enjoy the charity’s premier performance there.
Before his death, he did a great deal to champion and promote the work and cause of David Stanley and his pupils.
David Stanley said: “It is going to be an incredibly emotional night.
“It has been a while since we performed at the Royal Albert Hall due to the pandemic, so it will be so special to return.
“The current concert will be a night the audience and The Music Man Project will never forget.
“The 2019 debut was so spectacular and we can’t wait to return. It will be very poignant to me as David Amess was at our first performance and made a very special speech at the end.
“So, it will be very emotional to be back there, and we are very much hoping to dedicate it in his memory as well.”
“It will be an emotional rollercoaster, filled with joy laughter and tears, but most of all it will be a night of magic, as we celebrate the power of music to bring people together and create a sense of community.”
An exciting special guest is also set to perform with the group, as David explained: “We are also so thrilled that our patron, Michael Ball and the band of his Majesties Royal Marines, will be joining us for this incredible evening.”
