Music of the Night

Music of the Night

Posted on 2 August 2017 by Monika Reichelt

Ron Swanson, Assistant Fundraising Manager at the Ayrshire Hospice has a great passion for music. When not fundraising, he loves to sing in his spare time and Ron has recently recorded a CD album entitled “Music of the Night” to raise funds in aid of the hospice. The CD contains fifteen tracks featuring songs from musical theatre ranging from the 1950s to 2010s, Scottish material inspired by Robert Burns and some reflective ballads.

Ron Swanson said “I love my job at Ayrshire Hospice and I also love music so this has been the perfect fundraising activity for me to do!  The Ayrshire Hospice needs to fundraise around £12,000 per day to keep all hospice services running so I hope that the funds raised from the sale of the CDs will contribute in a small way and help reach this target.  Music has the power to inspire, make us smile and bring comfort to others and I hope that people enjoy the songs recorded.”

Ron performs locally in his spare time and completed an Advanced Certificate in Singing with Trinity College London in 2013 where he passed with Distinction.  Ron was later presented with an Exhibition Award for gaining one of the highest Distinction marks that Trinity College London had seen for an Advanced Certificate in Singing during 2013.

The CD is on sale at a requested minimum contribution of £10 each and one hundred per cent of proceeds will be donated to the hospice.  To order a copy of the album, please contact Ron Swanson at ronnie.swanson@btinternet.com
