Renowned soprano Patricia Rozario and her pupils Susanna Hurrell and Joanne D’Mello, along with pianist Mark Troop gave a wonderful concert (‘The Stunning Stratospheric Sopranos‘) in aid of our charity.

We’d like to acknowledge and thank Christopher Gomes of Furtados Goa for all the help and support he and his stores have given Child’s Play over the years. The music scene in Goa is richer because of them.
A big thank you to our friend Joseph Pinto who brought not one, not two, but three lovely violins for Child’s Play all the way from New Zealand.
Merry Christmas to all our friends and supporters. We look forward to exciting developments and lots of music in 2011!
Artemisia; Vanessa D’Souza, Mr. Thornhill; Francis Fernandes; Lucretia Barreto; and Ms. Isabel Santa Rita Vas: to all of you, a huge thank you for donations of instruments, or monetary donations toward the purchase of them. You have helped us a great deal!
We welcome further donations of violins, whatever their condition.
