Striking a chord for Greenpeace

On Sunday 21st November 2010, popular local computer wizard Ben Hess will be swapping the mouse for another string to his bow, celebrating his 40th birthday with a fun packed afternoon of music in support of Greenpeace! The concert will take place at 4pm in the Long Room at Michael Hall School, Forest Row. Tickets cost £15 at the door or £10 in advance (see below).

The programme? A diverse variety of chamber music including British, Spanish and Latin American works from Baroque to the 21st Century. Highly respected contributing musicians include: Mark Troop (piano), Diane Howard (piano), Jonathan Truscott (violin), Ben Grove (guitar), Andrea Hess (cello), Karin Bittleston (voice), etc.

As a keen supporter of Greenpeace, Ben wishes to celebrate his 40th birthday by raising funds with what will turn out to be a hugely enjoyable and entertaining Sunday afternoon.

Ben has trained as a professional cellist, studying for 4 years at RNCM and gaining his Masters from Trinity College of Music. He has worked with some of the countries’ world renowned orchestras including the BBC Concert Orchestra, Royal Liverpool Philharmonic and the London Mozart Players as well as performing on the West End in Stephen Sondheim’s “Sunday in the Park with George”.

He has proved himself to be an indispensable character with his IT skills, helping out local people with their many and varied computer “glitches”, as well as building and maintaining company networks. He also directs a website hosting company, Webfeast Design Ltd.

The evening will prove to be a spectacular event full of an eclectic selection of music to entertain and thrill audiences of all ages.
