An introduction by BMA trustee, Laurie Flynn followed by a special recording of the Marie Fidelis Gospel Choir singing ‘Breathe Fire’. in the first half, Akash provided a beautiful fusion of North Indian styles  on the Carnatic & Bansuri Flute, and Tabla; After the interval, Georg Michael Grau wowed the audience with a stunning performace of Schumann’s Etudes Symphoniques.

Thank you  to Adam Le Clercq for his role as musical director and to Laurie Flynn, chair of the BMA for hosting the evening and reading a stunning poem by Eduardo Galieano.

Thanks also go to the Brighton Unitarian church for letting us host the event for the third year in a row, and to all our volunteers and helpers on the night as well as those who attended the concert.

We believe Dow & DuPont must finally accept responsibility for Bhopal. Until then, The Bhopal Medical Appeal funds two award-winning clinics in the city. Both offer free, first-class care to victims of the gas disaster or the ongoing water contamination. The survivors have nowhere else left to turn – please help if you can.
