Songs from the Past; New life and new beginnings in an age of uncertainty. An evening of music and reflection on youth, well being and a future of hope.
An evening concert in aid of raising awareness of suicide in young men, fundraising for Boris Alexander’s Legacy and Off The Record, with performances by Borjghali, Bristol Georgian Choir, Octavio Domínguez & friends.
Bristol’s Borjghali choir specialises in singing the ancient songs of the Republic of Georgia. These heart stirring songs give voice to the lives, struggles, loves and passions of a people living on the edge of Europe and Asia. The choir was founded in 2004 by director Anthony Johnston www.borjghali.co.uk
Octavio Domínguez studied piano for 10 years at the Conservatorio Profesional de Musica Cristóbal de Morales in Seville, Spain. Rather than become a professional musician, he is now a secondary school maths teacher in Bristol and continues to play piano in his spare time. His favourite musician is Beethoven.
OTR is a mental health social movement by and for young people aged 11-25 living in Bristol and South Gloucestershire. Funds raised will support the work they do. http://www.otrbristol.org.uk
About the Boris Alexander’s Legacy: Boris’ Legacy was started following the death of Anthony & Paloma’s son Boris, who took his own life in February 2017. Boris touched the lives of all who knew him in Bristol and the West, with his kindness, generosity of spirit and his creativity. This fund has been created to research how we can best support young people who, at the threshold of adulthood, may find themselves lost, alone and depressed. Our intention is to produce practical advice and support for people in similar situations and their loved ones.
