For the Love of Music at St Michael & All Angels

A new short film, celebrating the work of young musicians in west London, features several children from St Michael & All Angels Church and schools in Chiswick and Ealing.

It’s been made by photographer and film-maker Kelvin Murray* and is being used to support this year’s St Michael’s Advent Calendar & Christmas Charity Appeal, for which children from the church have created the 24 pictures.

The two-minute film, For the Love of Music,  features 20 young musicians, including two members of St Michael’s Choristers – Wilfred Morris, playing a clarinet in St Michael’s Vicarage (top), and Rory Johnston playing saxophone (middle). Scenes of other young musicians were shot in St Michael & All Angels Church (bottom) and its sister church, St Peter’s Acton Green.

Wilfred has also created one of the paintings in St Michael & All Angels Advent Calendar – ‘To Bethlehem’  (left).
