Music at the Tower

We are Mary Bevan MBE, Will Thomas and Jonny Byers and we are all professional musicians. After months of no work, cancellations and fear about the future, we decided to set up a summer concert series where we live in Hornsey, North London, called ‘Music at the Tower’. The intention is to raise funds for Help Musicians UK but this particular campaign is aimed at fulfilling the ultimate goal which is to pay the musicians properly for their work, as currently they are giving up their time for free. The payment will be £130 per person per concert. Currently there are upwards of 71 performers that have already been employed. The series is now being run also by cellist Jonny Byers, who has also been giving his time and energy for free. It’s a difficult time for all those in the arts, and it is becoming increasingly more clear that live performance has to start small and local in order to survive these times. We want to continue the concerts for as long as the weather holds, and perhaps continue it in 2021 as well, if there seems to be a demand for it still! Thank you so much in advance for your help.
