A Night To Remember; Making Tracks Super-group Perform at 21st Anniversary Gig

We’ve already shared some of the twitter reactions to our 21st Year Gig at Union Chapel on 22/11/16 – now we have some beautiful photos taken by our friend Rob McElroy for you to enjoy!

Thanks again to all the guests & performers who made the evening so special; our Making Tracks super-group, special guest Speech Debelle backed by our fabulous house band,  Mark-Anthony Turnage & Lizzie Coombes (talking about the Bridges collaboration), the Royal Academy of Music Open Academy ensemble, Sounding Out band Platform 7, the wonderful Chaps Choir, and our glorious compere for the evening, Tim Dowling.

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!:
