In this special summer concert, Hull Chamber Music is thrilled to welcome renowned pianist Margaret Fingerhut in a fundraising recital in aid of Ukraine.

Around the World in 88 Piano Keys” is a piano travelogue that takes the audience on a whistle-stop tour across the globe. It is a dazzling array of composers familiar and not-so-familiar, which Margaret personally introduces from the keyboard.
