Wed 10 May 2017, 19:30 – 22:30 BST
In our third year, Blue Badge Style MIX raises funds to support musicians with disabilities at the Royal Academy of Music. This inclusive concert will be held in a ‘pop up’ location in Islington, Charlie Allen Bespoke, and will raise further funds for the 2017/18 academic year. It will be the event where 'Fashion Meets Food Meets Music'.
The multi-genre event, on the 10th May, will be a showcase for an eclectic mix of disabled and able-bodied talent. Several acts have already signed up to play including
- Midori jaeger - Cellist
- Mark pampel - Pianist
- James welland - Composer & Pianist
- David 9 Lunas - Singer Songwriter
- Steven Separovich - Recording Artist
The recipient of last year’s bursary, Fiona Joice, Soprano, said “I’m absolutely thrilled to be awarded this scholarship. It has gone a long way to paying my fees. Throughout my education, I’ve struggled with my dyslexia and dyscalculia. Since studying music I feel I have found my niche”.
Blue Badge Style has created a unique MIX concert in conjunction with Aldwych Sinfonia, a democratic orchestra that uses no formal conductor, rather a member of the orchestra conducts at each concert. It will be a concert of inclusion, where no genre is left out and no physical ability is excluded — the BBS MIX! From jazz to folk, funk, classical and beyond, the concert will have something for everyone.
