Young Fenland musicians hold emotional tribute concert for director killed in car crash
YOUNG musicians from the Fenland Music Academy have held an emotional tribute concert for their former director, who was killed in a car crash in April.
Mother-of-two Kathy Faelber had been driving to watch her students perform at their last concert in St Peter’s Church, March, when the fatal crash happened.
Tributes immediately began to pour in for the 56-year-old violinist, who had taught hundreds of young musicians across the county and had run several youth orchestras.
Students from the Fenland Music Academy united at Neale-Wade Community College last Saturday to hold an inspiring concert in memory of their former tutor.
All of the young musicians took part, with starter strings, junior strings, first blow wind ensemble, guitar group, swing band, cello group and percussion culminating into a rapturous orchestral performance of Tchaikovsky’s Sleeping Beauty.
