Fenland Music Centre handed �900 concert cheque as tribute is paid to former director
FENLAND Music Centre received �900 from March Rotary Club last week - with the money to go towards maintaining the “high standards” set by their former director.
Tutor Kathy Faelber, 56, died in a car crash on her way to watch her students at last month’s concert, which had been organised by the rotary club.
The proceeds of the concert - held at St Peter’s Church, March, on April 2 - were presented to Fenland Music Centre representative Claire Richardson on Monday.
Mrs Richardson thanked the club for their assistance with the concert and said the money would be used to continue the “high standards” set by Mrs Faelber - who had taught hundreds of young musicians across the county.
Mrs Richardson said the cheque would be used to maintain the access and ability for youngsters to learn musical skills at what has become a “Flagship for East Anglia”.
Presenting the cheque, March Rotary Club President John Lattimore said that club members were pleased to be involved in such a worthwhile event and pledged their support in the future.
