Seaford young musician Hambel Goodchild came along to the Rotary Club of Seaford’s lunch last week to play her flute and to tell members about her selection to take part in the next Commonwealth Resounds project.
This will involve a team of young musicians from the UK visiting Malta in November this year to run workshops with underprivileged children who are interested in learning how to play an instrument.
They will also be performing for them and letting them experiment with their instruments and teaching them the basics of music with the aim of bringing 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 said, “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 she is very proud to have been selected for the Commonwealth Resounds project.”
The Rotary Club of Seaford (www.seafordrotary.org.uk) meets at 12.45pm for 1pm on a Wednesday at Seaford Golf Club, Firle Road.
