Cellos in the Amazon: How music changed lives - A conversation with BBC producer Mark Rickards
Haldane Room |
Gower St | London | WC1E 6BT | United Kingdom
Ticketing: Pre-booking essential
Mark Rickards, Senior Producer, BBC
Mark Rickards explores how a radio programme he made changed the lives of young aspiring musicians in the Brazilian Amazon. The stories of those struggling to make music against all the odd in the rainforest touched an audience worldwide, with extraordinary consequences.
One listener felt so compelled to help that she organized a delivery of instruments to Brazil, an extraordinary total of 800 cellos and violins being sent to the city of Belem.
Join Mark Rickards to hear the inspiring stories of those determined to play music in the most difficult of conditions. The talk will be followed by a reception.
