A Christmas feast of music with the Kamuzinda Players including the Bach Double Violin Concerto, Corelli’s Christmas Concerto and smaller works by Purcell, Mozart and Schumann. There will also be pieces by Rameau, Boismortier and Piazolla. Top flight musicians, Jacqueline Shave, violinist, and six friends who have played in leading orchestras and chamber ensembles worldwide are giving their time to raise money for the Pearl of Africa Charity (pearlofafrica.org.uk), which helps fund a school for deprived children in Kamuzinda, Uganda.
Jackie and her cellist friend Rachael Maguire recently stayed in the school, where they helped and taught music to the children. They know how even a small donation can make a real difference to the children’s lives. Their moving experiences left them wanting to help more.
