Annual Jacqueline du Pré Concert in Aid of the Musicians Benevolent Fund

Thursday 21st February 2013

The 18th annual Jacqueline du Pré concert will take place on 5th March at Wigmore Hall. Each year, a concert is held in memory of Jacqueline du Pré, one of the greatest cellists of her generation, who passed away from multiple sclerosis at the age of 42. Since 1996, the concerts raise money for different musical and medical charities.

This year’s concert will be in aid of the Musicians Benevolent Fund, who provide advice, guidance or even financial support for musicians who need assistance. From musicians who are beginning their career, to musicians who may hit a crisis or are considering retirement.

Guy Johnston will be performing at the concert with pianist Tom Poster to perform a programme including works by Bridge, Britten and Debussy.
