Mental health is an ongoing issue and while we all go through tough times, sometimes mental health problems can be more complex than that and would require support and treatment. Richmond Foundation has been promoting mental health and well-being and giving this support for 30 years.

To celebrate their 30th anniversary, a musical performance is going to be held on the 6th of June at 8 pm at the Manoel Theatre in Valletta to connect music and mental health. This event will include a captivating recital featuring world-renowned violinist Carmine Lauri and guitarist Simon Schembri.

Carmine Lauri, a virtuoso violinist known for his mesmerising performances, and Simon Schembri, a highly skilled and expressive guitarist, will deliver a repertoire that not only showcases their exceptional talent but also carries a profound message of hope and understanding.

Organised by Malta Enterprise in collaboration with Teatru Manoel, the evening's performance is a testament to the enduring connection between music and mental health. Music has long been recognised as a therapeutic tool that can touch the depths of our emotions, provide solace during challenging times, and foster a sense of unity and healing.

By bringing together the immersive sounds of the violin and guitar, the aim is to create a transformative experience that resonates with the audience and raises awareness about mental health issues.

All proceeds from this special concert will be donated to the Richmond Foundation, allowing them to continue their invaluable work and expand their services.

In a world where mental health issues continue to be misunderstood and stigmatised, events like the Violin and Guitar Recital by Carmine Lauri and Simon Schembri play a crucial role in breaking down barriers and raising awareness.
