Past Virtual Events Autumn 2020
On Tuesday 10th November The Society staged the first virtual live concert. We were delighted that Salabanda, the partnership between Sally Beck on flute and Pato Banda on double bass performed exclusively for the Society. Despite performing from Sally's flat in Germany the music and atmosphere was excellent with only a few sound glitches. This was a first for the Society and we hope to be able to host more live events in future as we master all the technologies. Fabiana Jaramillo and Marcos Stuardo did a great job in organising and hosting the event.
The concert lasted about an hour with music from around the world including Tierra del Fuego. The pair showed great versatility with different styles of music mostly written by Pato Banda himself. This was a great Anglo Chilean combination and was supported through the Alan Macdonald Endowment. Marcos Stuardo the society's music consultant hosted a Q and A session after the concert which was a great moment to feel the personalities behind the performance.
DATE 10th November
The Anglo Chilean Society held their annual Mining Conference on October 20th. This year due to restrictions it was a virtual webinar. The Society was delighted that the Minister of Mining My Baldo Prokurica was present and gave his annual address.
The event was opened by the Society's chairman , Mr Alasdair Grant who thanked our generous sponsors: Antofagasta Holdings Plc. Anglo American Plc and The London Metal Exchange. This is one of the Society's most important events and as well as educating those in the UK about Chile it also raises funds for the Society's charitable obligations.
The Minister gave a 20 minute address which was simultaneously translated into English for those that required. Mr Prokurica outlined the plans of his Government from dealing with tailings, investment opportunities in Green Hydrogen and Lithium and copper mining. He also discussed the future constitutional referendum as well a the covid situation. The Society was delighted that Ms Andrea Hotter from the metal Bulletin joined us from New York to host a Q and A session.
The Society looks forward to hosting the Chilean Mining Community in person next year.

Roberto Bravo in Concert
The Society's winter season of virtual events was inaugurated with an exclusive concert performed by acclaimed Chilean pianist Roberto Bravo who was accompanied by Andrea Cardenas.
This was the opening event of a series of virtual cultural activities arranged by the Society to help the Arts in Chile and engage with our membership and beyond during this difficult time.
After a personal address to the Society by Roberto the attendees enjoyed a series of works by Ennio Morricone who sadly died earlier this year. The music was outstanding and the Society received many very positive comments .
The concert was followed by a question and answer session hosted by the Society's music advisor Marcos Stuardo. Robert Bravo talked about his time in London and love of the UK as well as why he has embraced more contemporary music .
The Chairman , Alasdair Grant closed the event by thanking all those who had attended and in particular the Executive Committee and Marcos Stuardo for making it possible. The Society is very grateful to Roberto for giving us his time and supporting our charitable aims.
DATE 15th October 2020
