Around The World In 88 Piano Keys – Fundraising for Ukraine
In this special summer concert, Hull Chamber Music is thrilled to welcome renowned pianist Margaret Fingerhut in a fundraising recital in aid of Ukraine.
This concert will help to raise funds for the British-Ukrainian Aid. So far Margaret has successfully raised enough money to buy two ambulances for Ukraine, and is now aiming to buy a third one.
“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.
“One of the most radiantly musical of pianists, she plays with such alluring sensitivity & effortless command that one cannot help but be won over” – International Piano
