Wonderful, world-class musicians, giving their time for a wonderful cause.
This concert is organised by the MAE Foundation, which concentrates on taking musical instruments and music teaching to thousands of refugee children from Burma in the jungle refugee camps along the Thai border.
Since 2010, the charity has delivered nearly two thousand instruments and songbooks to children in the Mae La camp. The aim of this concert is to finance a second MAE Foundation songbook, to buy more instruments and to guarantee the rapid expansion of our provision of music teachers for these bright, enthusiastic children.
Despite the changes now taking place in Burma, the children in these camps -- more than 60,000 of them -- will still be living in temporary, leaf-roofed huts in the jungle for years to come. Support the MAE Foundation and enjoy a superb evening of exciting music, played by an extraordinary line-up of virtuoso musicians.
