Music Technology BA Hons students stage charity concert

In December 2020, just prior to the Christmas lockdown, students from Kingston University’s Music Technology BA Hons degree staged a live-streamed charity concert from Visconti Studio.

Joe Lloyd, Alex Haim, Fraser Blanchflower and Tony Carnegie decided on using the studio as a venue as, in addition to the high quality recording equipment, the live room also has a PA system, monitoring and lighting rig. The concert was enjoyed by a web audience who were encouraged to make a donation to CALM (the Campaign Against Living Miserably), a charity which helps prevent suicide and offer support to those who need it.

Visconti Studio Education Officer, Alex Evans, said of the event “Staging a concert is challenging. Staging one during a pandemic and webcasting it, even more so. The fact that our students were able to safely put on a show demonstrates how brilliant they are at adapting to change, still creating ways to make the performance of music possible. Best of all, we’ve just heard they raised a total of £673.75 for their chosen charity!” 

Congratulations to everyone involved in this event!
