Concert for Médecins Sans Frontières

Mendelssohn and Mozart: what better way to spend a mellow September evening than listening to classic music for strings and supporting Médecins Sans Frontières?

Come along to the Friends Meeting House in St John’s Street, Bury St Edmunds on Saturday 20th September at 7.30 pm to hear easy listening and rightly popular classics played by string players from Churchgate Sinfonia.

Mendelssohn wrote his Octet (for 2 string quartets) when he was only 16 – it was a birthday present for his violin teacher. Its brilliance, youthful energy and perfection rightly make it one of the most popular pieces of music from the 19th century. The concert starts with two of Mozart’s short pieces for string orchestra.

All proceeds will go to Médecins Sans Frontières which is working on the front line in many parts of the world including West Africa coping with the Ebola epidemic, on the West Bank and in Ukraine. With tickets at only £10, £8 concessions and £2.50 (for children) come along and enjoy an evening of good music and raise moey for a good cause.

Tickets on the door or from Balaam’s Music or reserve yours by e-mailing
