‘Alive with Music’ will provide musicians with a platform to perform and showcase their talent. A variety of music genres on the day will be sure to provide something for everyone, with acts ranging from solo artists, to duets and bands, in the acoustic, pop and alternative rock genres. Acts will include Marble Parlour, Annie Keating and Seb Caddick, George Williams, Jennifer Wood and Nastasia Vashko and Tom Burgess.

The event is being hosted by Music Matters, a team of second year Events Management students. The team includes: Holly Ramsden, aged 20, from Llandudno; Hayley Brown, aged 19, from Darwen; Niamh Fahey, aged 20, from Lymm; Stavroulla Joannou, aged 20, from Sutton Coldfield and Enya Smith, aged 19, from Telford.

The team aims to promote and showcase fresh talent from artists in Chester and beyond. Stavroulla Joannou, Team Leader of Music Matters, said: “We are extremely happy to have this opportunity to support a cause that not many people necessarily know about. We all have a passion for music and want to help talented people to pursue a career in such a creative and intriguing industry. We are very excited for the forthcoming event, as we have some amazingly talented performers participating, and it promises to be a fantastic evening’s entertainment for a wonderful cause.”

All proceeds will go the charity Music Alive, which aims to improve access to music for disabled people. The charity initiates and develops creative music making with disabled and non-disabled people, ultimately supporting disabled people to achieve more independent, fulfilled and integrated lives.

Debbie Wolfsohn, Director of Music Alive, said: “We are thrilled that Music Matters is supporting Music Alive with this fantastic event. All proceeds raised will go towards improving access to music for disabled people.”

‘Alive with Music’ takes place at Telford’s Warehouse in Chester on February 13. Doors open at 6.30pm with music beginning at 7pm.
