How did your experiences as a student at Liverpool shape your life and your career?
“My experiences as a student at the University of Liverpool defined the rest of my life. I went to read English Language and Literature in order to communicate through teaching and it was while I was there, very active with the Dramatic Society and Music Society that a turmoil took place as to whether to go into theatre or take up a classical music career."
Why are you supporting this campaign?
“I believe music is the purest art form and all the arts should be encouraged. They are the soul of a nation.
“I’ve chosen to support wholeheartedly, the Music Performance Space project because I think it is essential to the wellbeing and health of the human spirit.
“If you have a specific home people know where to find you and they become interested in what the programmes are going to be and it becomes a stronger focus for attention.
