Knebworth '90

Silver Clef Award Winners Show

A concert in aid of the Nordoff-Robbins Music Therapy Centre and the Brit School of Performing Arts.

The planning for this concert started in September 1988 our target being the £3 million necessary to build a much needed new Centre for Nordoff-Robbins Music Therapy. So what, I hear you ask, is Music Therapy? In short, it is a way of communicating with, developing and enhancing the lives of mentally, physically and authistically handicapped children, through music.

Having settled on the idea of a fund-raising concert the next step was to approach artists who could attract the size of audience needed to raise this enormous sum of money. The perfect answer was on our doorstep - for the last 15 years Nordoff-Robbins Music Therapy have presented the Silver Cleff Award to artists for their outstanding services to the British Music Industry. So we asked them all!

The date of the concert had been set for June 30th 1990 and all the Silver Cleff Award Winners that were available on that date immediately agreed to perform, willing giving their services to support Music Therapy.

The concert sold out instantly and it became evident that our target would be exceeded. To greatfully acknowledge the support that Nordoff-Robbins has received from the music industry it was agreed that the proceeds would be shared with a new venture - The Brit School for Performing Arts - currently being established by the British Phonographic Industry.

And so to the day itself - as host for the concert, I represented Nordoff-Robbins Music Therapy. Onstage, I was overwhelmed by the size, the appreciation and the sheer good humour of the huge audience. Offstage, I was equally impressed by the professionalism and good will of the artists and their crews. A magnificent show, a terrific day - one of the best of my life.
