In February 2016 we were devastated by the death of Amy Moar, a highly gifted composer, harp player and teacher. In only a few short years working with us, Amy had become one of the key members of our team to be found at the centre of many of our acclaimed projects and performances, not least our Traditional Scots music ensemble Equilibrium.
Amy’s talent as a musician was matched by her warmth, humour and generosity and to our delight, we discovered Amy was a born communicator on stage too. The way she could charm the audience both playing and talking about her compositions was natural and effortless.
In 2014, Amy was selected to become one of our first ever Developing Potential Trainees and recently completed her training with two highly successful projects in Angus Special Schools. We had been looking forward to engaging Amy in further schools work as lead musician when she became seriously ill in December 2015.
We are extremely grateful to Amy’s family who have very kindly set up a Justgiving In Memory page to Amy at https://www.justgiving.com/teams/AmyMoarLegacyFunds which will support the work of Drake Music Scotland and Scottish Love in Action. We are delighted to honour the legacy of someone who gave so much to so many.
