Project 2022 - Katie and Thom Stanbury produced another CD for the community group Stockwell Good Neighbours, as the pandemic continued to isolate those especially vulnerable.
The pieces had been rehearsed throughout 2021 during lockdowns, and as things eased and it was a joy to be able to perform the pieces in real life, as well as record them.
A CHRISTMAS GIFT
A CD made for the members of the charities Stockwell Good Neighbours and Diamond Club for their ‘Bring Me Sunshine’ initiative. This project gives a goody bag of activities and spiritual support to the members. Katie and her musical partner and church organist, Thom Stanbury, decided to record several carols and hymns to make a gift to include in the goody bags for Christmas. The CD reached 300 people in the South London area.
Everyone loves a good character. Check out Katie’s Gallery to see images from her latest shoot and explore the array of characters, personas and glamorous theatrical nights with Soprano and Arts Superstar Katie Milton.
