"Far From the Home I Love" - a special concert by Margaret Fingerhut
Acclaimed international pianist Margaret Fingerhut will perform at Brighton College, in our Sarah Abraham Recital Hall, on World Refugee Day 20th June 2019. Margaret 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, ProkoEiev 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.
