Acclaimed international pianist Margaret Fingerhut has devised a very special concert that she is performing across the UK to raise awareness of refugee needs as well as to collect funds for City and Town of Sanctuary refugee groups.
Through music and words, Margaret tells the story of some of the many composers who were refugees because of war or persecution, or who migrated for their work.
Her programme includes Chopin, Grieg, Handel, Haydn, Prokofiev and Rachmaninov, and she has specially commissioned a new piece by Arian, the Kurdish Syrian composer who wrote the Refugee National Anthem for the 2016 Olympics.
The event is being organised by Loughborough Town of Sanctuary https://loughborough.cityofsanctuary.org/ It is being held on Saturday June 1st at Emmanuel Church, Loughborough. LE11 3NW
