Music returned to Gravelly Barn in October with a concert featuring Izzy Cooper, supported by flautist Julia Bentley Dawkes. A packed audience was entranced by her powerful voice and her rendition of classical favourites, songs from the musicals and popular music hits. There was something for every musical taste.
The night raised over £1,200, which will go to the Multiple Sclerosis Society and Diabetes UK. Big thanks to Richard and Mary Walsh for their help in organising the concert, and all those who helped behind the scenesI
English soprano Izzy Cooper has pioneered the classics in a fresh and innovative way, achieving three no.1 albums in the classical charts world wide. As a result of Izzy’s overall success, she was nominated ‘best female artist’ in the classical Brit Awards, with her music being embraced as a new force in the ‘healing music’ market for its spiritual and relaxing qualities.
In addition, Izzy has a special love of music therapy and the power it holds in healing young children plus continues to teach what she has learned through her experience to others, especially the younger generation who inspire her to want to help and put back into the community.
