CHILDREN CHANGE COLOMBIA – 14 NOVEMBER
PHIL MANZANERA (Roxy Music), LOUIS de BERNIÈRES (Captain Corelli) AND FERNANDO MONTAÑO (Royal Ballet) PERFORM AT A GALA EVENING OF MUSIC, WORDS AND DANCE
FOR ‘CHILDREN CHANGE COLOMBIA’
Phil Manzanera, of Roxy Music fame, Louis de Bernières, celebrated author, and Fernando Montaño, Soloist at The Royal Ballet and charity patron, will be performing with guest artists in aid of ‘Children Change Colombia’, the charity devoted to supporting children at risk in Colombia. This sparkling evening of music, words and dance is on 14 November at London’s Hippodrome Cabaret theatre.
Guest artists also performing on the night include: Andy Mackay (Roxy Music), singer/songwriter Sonia Bernardo (currently touring with Jools Holland), drummer Javier Weyler ( ex- Stereophonics), multi-instrumentalist Joao Mello (member of Razorlight and recently toured with David Gilmour), Papillon, the duo of violinist Anna Phoebe and guitarist Nicolas Rizzi, (Anna has played with Jethro Tull, Roxy Music and the Trans Siberian Orchestra), bassist Yaron Stavi (played with many of the greats, including Robert Wyatt, Nigel Kennedy and Gilad Atzmom), celebrated actress and patron of Children Change Colombia, Virginia McKenna.
Phil Manzanera said: “My mother was Colombian and so I’ve always felt a strong affinity with the country and its people. I’m delighted to support Children Change Colombia and the important work it does for children at risk there. I’m looking forward to playing with these wonderful artists on the night of the 14th and thank them for their support.”
Louis de Bernières said: “I spent a year in the Colombian countryside when I was nineteen, and it had an indelible effect on me. It was years before I felt British again, and I have taken an interest in Colombia ever since. Colombia has always suffered from child-related social problems, and for that reason I am delighted to support this charity.”
This event follows on from last year’s sell-out success hosted by Fernando Montaño, Royal Ballet star and charity patron. Children Change Colombia has been working since 1991 to defend children’s rights in Colombia, it works with local children’s organisations who have a proven record in defending the rights of children most affected by poverty, inequality and conflict.
