About the ConCert

Each year, dedicated FBC Sight Savers, The Hirst Brothers, perform a live music concert called “Concert for the Blind” in honour of their younger brother Jacob Hirst, who lives with an inherited eye disease.  This year, due to COVID restrictions, the in-person concert was not possible, so we decided to help make it accessible and even bigger! This year, The Hirst Brothers will be joined by up and coming musicians to present a combined virtual concert, raising funds and awareness for vision research.

How to Attend

The concert is open to all and will be streamed on Zoom, December 5th at 8 p.m. ET. A minimum $20 donation will provide access to the private Zoom link. The link will be emailed to you 24 hours before the concert.

Making Your Donation: 2 Options

Please join us to celebrate the talented efforts of these aspiring musicians as they come together in support of advancing vision research.
