In January, Lily was honoured to be part of Holocaust Memorial Day Trust's national ceremony, remembering 75 years since the liberation of Auschwitz. English Cabaret's memorial flame artwork, Shining a light on the evidence of Nuremberg, was chosen to feature as part of HMDT's #75memorialflames exhibition which was launched on the same day. Here it is superimposed on the document room of the Palace of Justice in Nuremberg where the evidence of the War Crimes Trials was stored from 1945 - 46.
"It was such a beautiful performance!"
Earlier this month, with English Cabaret Lily was delighted to perform excerpts from Sue Casson's song-cycle, Dreams of Peace & Freedom at Rene Cassin's fellowship programme.

Since World Theatre Day on the 27th March 2020, I have been sharing my #iheartmusicals project online via Instagram and this website. Every week I have shared a new musical history decade, choosing my favourite show and a song cover from it.
