The Magic of Music - Ken

Ken Smith

What does music mean to you?
To me, music is sheer joy and a solace.

What is your favourite music memory?
It is hard to single out any one musical memory, but there are two which stand out to me. Singing solo A Nightingale Sang in Berkeley Square at the Sage with the Silver Wind Band and singing Roses of Picardy solo, again at the Sage, with piano accompaniment by Jenny Martins.

What is your hope for music in the North East in 2021?
I hope that in 2021 musicians and singers in the North East will be able to resume live concerts and gigs and that the Sage Gateshead will stage a comeback with its live Silver Programme.

What is your favourite Christmas song or carol?
It is very hard to just pick out one Christmas carol or song as so many are wonderful, but O Holy Night (Cantique Noel) and Winter Wonderland are two I am particularly fond of.
