Recitals cancelled due to Coronavirus
Breinton members raise money for charity Help Musicians
With the unfortunate onset of COVID-19 Coronavirus across the world in March, we had to cancel the last three planned recitals of our 2019/20 season.
Our wonderfully supportive members kindly donated nearly all the ticket sales from these three events to the Coronavirus Financial Hardship Fund run by the leading charity, Help Musicians. This donation of £3,000 will be used by Help Musicians to assist those who are in need during this difficult time.
