A concert of music in memory of local musician David Jackson. 

The concert will include David's piano compositions, and some of David's favourite music. With the fine pianist Christopher Boodle.

When David was diagnosed with terminal lung cancer, he had just finished his first piano composition and was determined to write a second.

David spent much of his remaining time composing.  As the pain relief increased David could not concentrate on his composition.

Moira Cima was David's final visitor, and helped him with his music.  Moira told him 'it will be finished, and it will be played.' When asked, Christopher Boodle agreed to complete David’s second composition, which we will hear in this concert.

Also in the concert, you will hear members of local clubs who influenced David's compositions, with whom he had musical conversations, or whose music he enjoyed:

Dark Island, Sue Edwards, Janice Frape, Barry Martin, Clive Perkins, Nicola Clark

Longfield Hospice at Home carers visited twice a day, increasing to 3 times a day. Thanks to Longfield David had his wish to remain at home until the end.

This concert has been put together by Alex, and David's wife Ann, celebrating what would have been their Golden Wedding Anniversary. 

Tickets are £10.00 to include refreshments, and are available from Ann (Tel: 01453 832552) or from the Longfield shops in Nailsworth and Minchinhampton.
