Mozart: Spring Celebration
Friday 26 April 2019, 7.00pm, in support of Music Fund (www.musicfund.eu)
Flautist Abigail Dolan joins a string trio to mark the end of Pesach with Mozart’s set of works that is among his most optimistic and energetic. Music Fund is a charity that collects unwanted musical instruments from European donors, repairs them, and sends them to music projects in countries in need or in conflict. It also trains and supports instrument repairers in those countries so that the instruments donated remain in good condition.
A short service followed by a concert. Please donate your un-used musical instrument or make a financial donation.
