Margaret Fingerhut

REF NR: 7441

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 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.
 
Margaret Fingerhut is one of the UK's best-loved and most distinguished pianists. Her career has taken her to many different countries, and her extensive discography on the Chandos label has won numerous accolades and worldwide critical acclaim. Margaret's grandparents came to the UK from the Ukraine, Poland and Ireland, so this programme is a deeply personal project for her.
 
All the proceeds from the concert will go towards supporting the work of refugee organisations and their refugee families. ​​ ​
