IPEM is delighted to present its first ever charity concert to be held on the 18th September at the National Centre for Early Music in York.
We are raising money for a project to provide a model 'linac' machine to all children undergoing radiotherapy treatment across the country. Over 1500 children receive treatment each year, and toy bricks are an ideal way to educate young patients and reduce their anxiety about treatment through play. The kits allow them to make three different treatment machines that they may encounter.
To raise money for this project and to celebrate 70 years of the NHS, we are hosting a charity concert. There will be a range of music and readings during the evening, performed by IPEM members and others with links to the Institute.
As well as our President Mark Tooley performing several classical piano pieces, there will be the chance to hear The Trueman Trio, a string trio known for their performances on York Hospital Wards. There will be pieces performed on the violin, the flute and the alto sax, as well as a performance by our very own IPEM Voices Choir. In addition we have a Scottish medley played on the bagpipes, and some traditional Welsh folk tunes.
This is going to be a great evening and includes reflections on science in the NHS over the last 70 years, as well as giving you the opportunity to find out more about the Little Linac project.
