Concert for Chester City of Sanctuary group
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 has a distinguished career which has taken her all over the world, and is particularly known for her innovative recital programmes. As a concerto soloist she has appeared with the all the UK's major orchestras, and she is frequently heard on BBC Radio 3 and Classic FM and many radio stations worldwide.
Her extensive discography on the Chandos label has received worldwide critical acclaim and won many accolades. Her many recordings reflect her long-standing fascination with exploring lesser-known repertoire.
Chester City of Sanctuary group was launched in November 2018. They aim to raise awareness of the issues faced by refugees and asylum seekers and to create a safe, welcoming and inclusive environment locally. To find about more about what they do, or how you can be involved
