This Is Your Life

In 1995 Ezra Rachlin died at the age of 79. With Iain’s help, Ann continued her work with Fun with Music®™ . On the first anniversary of Ezra’s death, Ann and Iain organised a concert at the Savoy Theatre, London to celebrate Ezra’s life in aid of The Beethoven Fund for Deaf Children. Dame Evelyn Glennie, Cristina Ortiz, Edward Fox, Joanna David, Richard Markson with members of the London Symphony Orchestra contributed to the programme which was presented on stage by Ann in the presence of Her Majesty Queen Anne-Marie of Greece. As Ann was taking her bow, she was surprised to see Michael Aspel, who hosted the then current television show “This is Your Life”, walk on stage with the Big Red Book. Among the many contributors to the programme paying tribute to Ann’s work, were Yehudi Menuhin, Sir Georg Solti, Lord Runcie (former Archbishop of Canterbury) Rabbi Hugo Gryn, Joanna David and Emilia Fox.
