We are delighted to announce that Margaret Fingerhut, internationally acclaimed pianist, has agreed to play at the Wesley Church Centre (8, St John Street) in Chester on Thursday 17th October 2019 at 7.30 pm.
Margaret is performing across the UK to raise awareness of refugee needs and to collect funds for City of Sanctuary groups. At her concert Margaret speaks about, and plays the works of, many composers who were refugees due to war or persecution or who migrated for their work. Her programme includes music by Chopin, Grieg, Handel, Haydn, Prokofiev and Rachmaninov. A new piece has been commissioned by Arian, a Kurdish Syrian composer, who wrote the Refugee National Anthem for the Olympic Games in 2016.
Please join us for what promises to be a very special concert.
