Southwark Children’s Brass Band (SCBB), winners of our Proud to Perform award gave a concert in Dulwich Park at the weekend as part of the Dulwich Festival.
SCBB’s concert was a warm up event ahead of their concert tour to Paris in July, which we are fully funding as part of our Proud to Perform project.
“Proud to Perform was the brainchild of my colleague Hannah Bastick who wanted to challenge the idea that touring is just for rich people and give a wonderful performing opportunity to a disadvantaged group,” commented Club Europe Head of Concert Tours Lucy Szymonski, who attended the concert on Sunday. “It’s been a real privilege to be involved in such a lovely project and I hope this tour will be a great platform for SCBB to showcase their talent to new audiences.”
