Duchess of Kent Honors Young Musicians
The Duchess of Kent was treated to a special concert at the Ryedale Festival tea party. Young musicians from the Future Talent Champions charity played a concert for over 100 people at the Kirkby Misperton Village Hall. Ken Overton, who is the festival’s chairperson told the Gazette Herald, “the concert was fantastic and very emotional. Each of the young people who played have started to achieve, but haven’t reached the level where they are performing in concert.”
Future Talent Champions is a charity group that is dedicated to helping young musicians, especially those who have grown up in poverty. The Duchess of Kent serves as a trustee for the group. She greeted the musicians and concert goers, and stressed the importance of giving young people the opportunity to perform in a concert setting.
The Ryedale Festival lasted for two weeks, and ended with a concert at Hovingham Hall, which coincidentally, is the birthplace of the Duchess.
