Concert for Ukraine

We are thrilled that several musicians who delighted our audiences last year, together with others performed this year in Whittington joined our Hon. Patron Steven Isserlis CBE in a concert to raise funds for humanitarian relief in Ukraine.

The concert took place at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, May 25th in St Peter’s Church, Belsize Park, London NW3 4HJ. All proceeds will go equally to the UK Disasters Emergency Committee of 15 leading UK aid charities and UNICEF.

Steven, who was to have been giving a concert in Odessa that day, played Haydn’s Cello Concerto N1 in C major, and rising star Irène Duval performed Mozart’s A major Violin Concerto, K219. The other delight on the programme was Mozart’s Symphony N29 in A major, K201. The Whittington Festival Players were conducted by Andres Kaljuste, well known to Whittington audiences as a versatile violist and violinist.
