Animo were invited to perform at the AEMC virtual (because of COVID-19) conference which dealt with the question 'Is Classical Music dead?'

For us the question ’is Classical Music dead?’ is important. As a Duo we believe that Classical Music as a term is perhaps no longer relevant and to define music into a type creates a feeling of division, expectation and restriction.
For us the act of giving and receiving music should be an inclusive experience without boundaries but a simple freedom of expression.

No one needs to know what they are listening to, it’s just music...

June 2018

St Briavels Church, Forest of Dean

Saturday 9th June 2018

ANIMO (then just Sarah and Yanna) performed as special guests in a concert organised by the Springfield Singers raising funds for Nicky’s giving fund, a cause that is very close to Sarah’s personal story.

A very moving and joyous event in front of a full audience. ANIMO started their contemporary music journey then playing Astor Piazzolla and Richard Rodney Bennett.

The concert was a success and raised awareness of a charity that quietly supports young people to fulfil their potential despite personal, physical and emotional obstacles or disabilities.
