Congratulations to Charlie Siem, who received the


“ARTIST OF THE YEAR AWARD 2013 –

The Children for Peace”

The Children for Peace (ONLUS) is an Italian NGO founded with the express purpose of assisting children worldwide who are in need of fundamental survival support. Many studies and humanitarian reports have been performed all of which have very similar findings. Despite the man-hours spent investigating the plight of these suffering children, there has been a lack of focus on the essential necessities that would allow these children to have the opportunity to change their conditions as well as the conditions of their immediate and future families. The Children for Peace (ONLUS) has taken on the cause of such children internationally and intends to pursue all possible avenues to provide them with the help and support that will allow for the best possible chance at a better future.







Children are caught in the wars of illiteracy, of armed conflict, of hunger, starvation, illness, and of isolation from opportunity. Although the task of remedying such situations is great, and often, to others, impossible, we know that the only way adversity is overcome is to confront it head-on and take all necessary actions to create change. It is with this in mind, that The Children for Peace was founded.

London 2012 Olympic Games Opening Ceremony

Dame Evelyn Glennie performed at the Opening Ceremony of  the London 2012 Olympic Games, watched by an estimated audience of 4 billion.

“Celebrated percussionist Evelyn Glennie, led 1,000 volunteer drummers as factory smokestacks then burst through the greenery”
Los Angeles Times

“Percussionist Dame Evelyn Glennie was definitely heard on Friday night at the Olympic opening ceremony. The professional musician led 1,000 drummers while the rest of the actors shared a visual moment surrounding the English industrial revolution. With her instruments above the actual stage, the artist kept the beat as the actors gave a visual on how the changing times created the United Kingdom.”
Examiner.com

“Birdsong that had played so peacefully over the million-watt speaker system gave way to the rising sound of drums, played first by Dame Evelyn Glennie with her hair whirling wild, then joined by many others in a thunderous rhythm”.
The Telegraph

Dame Emma Kirkby received Royal Award

M.A.M. artist Dame Emma Kirkby has been awarded Her Majesty’s Medal for Music for the Year 2010. 

2 June 2011 Dame Emma Kirkby was received by The Queen when Her Majesty presented her with The Queen's Medal for Music.

Sir Peter Maxwell Davies, current Master of The Queen's Music was present.

Dame Emma said she was “very pleased and grateful” to receive the Award. She said: “I feel extremely lucky to have worked so many years with excellent colleagues, both singers and instrumentalists, in the revival of music from the richest eras of our national heritage; this is repertoire offering joy and fulfilment to players and listeners alike and I am happy to see so many younger artists now adding their own voices to the endeavour.”

Sir Peter Maxwell Davies said: “I think it’s marvellous that the world of early music has been recognised in this year’s Queen’s Medal for Music, particularly that the award is going to Dame Emma Kirkby, who has done more than anybody to put this music in the centre of our musical consciousness.”

 

Dame Emma is the sixth winner of the award, which was introduced in 2005 and is made annually to an individual or group judged to have had a major influence on the musical life of GB. Previous winners are Sir Charles Mackerras (2005), Bryn Terfel (2006), Professor Judith Weir (2007), Kathryn Tickell (2008) and Sir Colin Davis (2009).

Congratulations Dame Emma!
