About The Event:
Through Sickness and Health - A Charity Concert for Manchester Mind

Join us on the 22nd March at Forsyth Music Shop for "Through Sickness and Health," a charity concert supporting Manchester Mind. This unique event intertwines music, dance, and visual art to explore the journey from mental illness to mental health.

The evening will feature the emotive piano artistry of María Linares, alongside the creative talents of painter Sophie Iliaifair, who will create a live painting inspired by the concert's themes. Adding to the multisensory experience, dancer Lucy Wilson-Knight will interpret the music and visual art through her expressive dance. This collaborative performance, curated by Gema Lu Cai, promises an engaging and meaningful experience for all attendees.

Entry to the event is donation-based, with a suggested donation of £5. All proceeds will go directly to Manchester Mind, supporting their invaluable work in mental health. This concert is not just an opportunity to enjoy a rich tapestry of arts but also a chance to contribute to a vital community cause.

We invite you to join us for an evening that celebrates artistic talent and supports an important mission. Your participation will make a significant impact in the community and in the lives of those supported by Manchester Mind.
