What a Night! Celebrating 21 Years at the Union Chapel

show-1-1Wow! Tuesday 22 November 2016 now has a special place in the hearts of everyone involved in the Irene Taylor Trust! The culmination of our 21st year celebrations (yes, a whole year! Yes, we’re bonkers!) – which has involved collaborative projects with Clean Break, Synergy Theatre Company, the Human Revolution Orchestra, fundraising concerts by violinist Maxim Vengerov at Temple Church and Stephen Hough at the Hampstead Arts Festival, and of course our special ‘Bridges’ project with composer Mark-Anthony Turnage, photographer Lizzie Coombes and groups from our three programmes Music in Prisons, Sounding Out and Making Tracks – our ‘big gig’ at Union Chapel was a full-on celebration of our work, with musicians from our programmes centre-stage!

It seems that the audience agreed with us about how fantastic and fitting a celebration it was!:
