My commitment to supporting remarkable organizations such as “Free the Children” is a reminder that every child has something very special and unique about them. Everyone is born with a gift and that is why I wanted to name this CD “A Child’s Gift”.
I truly believe that children around the world need to be loved, supported, and nurtured so that they can find their own gift. Christmas is always a festive and happy time of the year for my family, yet I also understand that many children do not have the basic necessities of life which we often take for granted.
In this holiday CD, I enjoyed selecting some of my favourite Christmas pieces and arranging both the violin and piano parts. While the traditional spirit is honoured, I am able to express my own unique interpretation, within each piece. The “What Child Is This?” arrangement is dedicated to all the children around the world and the “Free the Children” organization.
I am thrilled to share the Christmas season with you through this CD. I hope this CD encourages you to help less fortunate children, through “Free the Children”, by giving them a memorable gift that can last a lifetime. My wish would be that it also inspires children to follow their dreams – whatever they maybe.
Have a joyous Christmas and know that every child truly has a gift that is waiting to be discovered. I look forward to hearing from you and about your special gift. You can reach me at www.leslieashworth.com.
