Pianist Isata Kanneh-Mason will be performing a recital online in aid of the music education charity London Music Masters (LMM) at 7pm on Wednesday 20 May, available to watch here: https://londonmusicmasters.org/
As part of LMM’s Instruments of Change Livestream, Isata will play Beethoven’s Piano Sonata No. 2 in A major, Op. 2, No.2, (1st mvt, allegro vivace), Gershwin’s Three Preludes and Chopin’s Prelude in D minor, Op. 28, No. 24. Elsewhere, there’ll be a virtual flashmob from LMM students, artists and ambassadors, and a special guest message from LMM’s Teacher Training Ambassador Nicola Benedetti.
The livestream will celebrate the hard work of LMM’s teachers and students during the Covid-19 pandemic. In order to keep their students engaged and motivated in this time, the LMM team has organised online resources, weekly Zoom lessons and a regular programme of events encouraging creative music making.
LMM teaches the violin and cello to 1,300 children every week, 41% of whom are eligible for free school meals. Currently, the charity has three months to raise £250,000, and people can donate by heading to their website.
