Art Saves Us: concert support the NHS staff on Good Friday

Art Saves Us is a new on-line art, music and poetry hour launched to support the work of the NHS staff, and supported by cellist Julian Lloyd Webber. The second concert will take place at 3pm (BST) on Friday 10 April 2020 (Good Friday) on Zoom.

The line-up includes British poet and librettist, David Harsent, Chinese soprano, Yao Hong (Vice President of the China National Opera House), American-Serbian pianist, Ivan Ilic, opera singer and actor Zhang Jun (noted for his expertise in the ancient Chinese opera art of ‘Kunqu’ and recipient of the UNESCO Artist for Peace Award), Chinese cellist, Jiaxin Lloyd Webber and Royal Academician, painter and printmaker, Chris Orr, who has generously donated a painting to be auctioned to raise money for the cause.

Art Saves Us was founded by Shanghai-born, London-based Kailan Lucas, who is an American lawyer, and her creative focus is on Sino-European cultural exchanges in the worlds of art, literature and music.

Further events are planned for 17 and 24 April with more to be added in due course as the current health crisis unfolds. Event access will be a nominal £1 to help support the NHS.
