Music for Liberia: Kamilla Arku (Piano)
Since 2008, Music for Liberia has raised money for education in Liberia through concerts and events featuring world renowned classical, African and jazz musicians. Donations have enabled their charity partners to fund crucial work, including building libraries, supporting rural schools and providing accommodation for Ebola orphans. Borough New Music is delighted to collaborate with the pianist Kamilla Arku, in a fundraising event for Music for Liberia, in which she will perform a fascinating selection of music by living composers, some of whom she has worked with personally, and including the world premiere of Virginia Seay’s ‘9 Pieces’ (1944).
