On Saturday the 17th of August, 3 of our young musicians from All In Music took to the high street of Southend-on-sea to partake in our very first “Busking Day” event.
This was taken place in the centre of the high street outside of the brand new YMCA charity shop. The sun shone kindly and brightly for us and as did the performances from Alice Berry, Chloe Payne and Chloe Adegoke.
The public were very giving and generous to our buskers in the fact that the young performers raised a grand total of £67.40.
The money raised has now been donated to the Southend YMCA - so once again a huge thank you to the Southend public for giving this amount and enjoying our young musicians sets of both originals and covers.
A special mention to Yasmin Samandi who gave us her time to perform a couple of incredible sets. Our tutor’s Tom and Davey also were on hand for a few songs themselves.
A very successful day of busking which displayed our young people’s skills, practice and dedication during their sessions at All In Music for this performance opportunity. See you at the next one!
