Description

Thursday 13 December 2018


CRAE is thrilled to announce that we will be hosting a charity evening celebrating autistic people in the arts.

For this extra special event, we are incredibly excited to welcome world-renowned concert pianist, Derek Paravicini. Derek is blind, autistic and has severe learning difficulties and is one of the most extraordinary pianists and musical entertainers of his generation, rapidly learning musical pieces simply by listening to them.

Derek will be joined on stage by Professor Adam Ockelford, Director of the Applied Music Research Centre at the University of Roehampton, whose research focuses on educational needs and music for those with disabilities.

Autistic artist, Patrick Samuel will also be live-drawing the performance and his artworks will be on display in the foyer throughout the evening for guests to enjoy at their leisure.


The evening will be hosted by CRAE's very own current Artist-in-Residence, Ali Northcott.


We look forward to welcoming you all in what will be a fantastic festive celebration!

Anna Remington and the CRAE Team.

We will be collecting charitable donations throughout the evening. All proceeds will be donated to two chosen charities: “Choir With No Name” who run choirs for homeless and marginalised people and the "Sounds of Intent" which supports music education for children, young people and adults with disabilities.
