Far from the Home I Love - piano concert
St Andrew's Church, Sheffield
Wednesday, 6 Nov 2019
7:30pm to 10:00pm
Acclaimed international pianist Margaret Fingerhut has devised this very special concert that she has been performing across the UK to raise awareness of refugee needs while raising funds for City of Sanctuary 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.
This final concert in Margaret's tour will be introduced by City of Sanctuary national president and founder Inderjit Bhogal OBE.
“Moving” … “Enchanting” … “Powerful” … “An emotional roller-coaster”
Ticket price includes a free glass of wine or juice. All proceeds will go to supporting the work of City of Sanctuary Sheffield at The Sanctuary in Chapel Walk. Concessionary tickets are available on application to The Sanctuary. With thanks to St Andrew's Psalter Lane Church for hosting the event.
