A PACKED audience was wowed by a celebratory concert for a Winchester music charity’s 15th birthday.

Key Changes Music Therapy marked the milestone with an evening of music with acclaimed singer, composer, broadcaster and charity patron Roderick Williams.

Osborne School’s rock choir, Rubik’s Cube, opened the show and impressed the audience at St Paul’s Church, in St Paul's Hill, on Saturday, September 30.

As well as performances from the Key Changes staff, Mr Williams and other local musicians, the charity launched a fundraiser for its birthday to support more vulnerable people living in Hampshire through music.

The charity, based at Winnall Community Centre, has 10 music therapists visiting schools, clubs and clients to help them deal with mental illnesses, learning disabilities, social deprivation and developmental delay. 

Project lead Beccy Read, 63, said: “Huge thanks to all involved, proving the power of music to inspire and energise, and to help in times of difficulty.”
