ROTARY HELPS HAMBEL MAKE MUSIC IN MALTA
April 10 2015.
Mike Hemmings reports:
On Wednesday of this week, Seaford young musician Hambel Goodchild came along to the Rotary Club of Seaford’s lunch to play her flute and to tell us about her selection to take part in the next Commonwealth Resounds project where a team of young musicians from the UK will visit Malta in November 2015 to run workshops with underprivileged children who are interested in learning how to play an instrument. They will also be performing to them and letting them experiment with their instruments and teaching them the basics of music with the aim to bring some happiness, enjoyment and interest to their lives.
The Rotary Club of Seaford has agreed to help her to put on a concert in the summer to raise funds for her to take part in this most worthwhile project.
Club President Ray Hazan explains: “We are delighted to have the opportunity to support Hambel in this way, and we wish her every success for the future.
"Hambel was the winner of the Seaford Rotary Young Musician of the Year competition in 2013 and she now attends the Purcell School of Music. She is a very accomplished flautist and pianist and is very proud to have been selected for the Commonwealth Resounds project.”
