Prospect Burma Classical Concert at The Savile Club Wednesday September 24th, 2014 at 6.30pm

 

Prospect Burma has pleasure in inviting you to a classical recital in the gracious surrounds of The Savile Club with Nathan Williamson on piano and Josh Htet on vocal/guitar. 

The programme includes Nathan Williamson performing a Beethoven piano sonata and a contemporary classical piece inspired by Burma. Nathan will be joined by Josh Htet (vocal/guitar) for various well-known traditional and modern folk songs from Burma. Some of the pieces of the evening come out of the Musical Bridge Project headed by Josh, which have been creating a curious and wonderful mixture of Burmese folk music and Western classical music.

 

Nathan studied at the Guildhall School, Oxford and Yale Universities and receives regular commissions from around the world for new compositions. This is the fourth time that Nathan has generously performed for Prospect Burma, and each time has been a sell-out concert. Josh Htet is a PB alumnus who graduated from University of Oxford and is currently a lawyer in London. 

 

Admission to the concert with a welcome drink is just £20, and for the added option of a 3-course dinner with wine, the price is an additional £30. Dress code is smart casual, jacket and tie required, no jeans or trainers.  The Savile Club was founded in 1868 and is located at 69 Brook Street, London W1K 4ER.  Reservations should be made as soon as possible directly with The Savile Club by giving your credit card details to Maja on 020 7491 5563 and quoting Prospect Burma Concert.

DAW AUNG SAN SUU KYI APPEALS FOR PROSPECT BURMA


Monks_at_Shwedagon_PagodaEducation has always been one of my chief concerns as it is, together with health care, the most important need for the future of Burma. Without an educated and qualified population efforts to build a stable, developed society would be obstructed by insurmountable difficulties.

Prospect_Burma_StudentsProspect Burma is a non-political charity which does its best to fill the gap. It funds scholarships for young Burmese, most of whom have been forced to look for their education abroad.

I am very proud to learn that Prospect Burma has grown so much since its foundation. Unfortunately an enormous amount still remains to be done to help young people in Burma acquire education of a standard that would enable them to take their country forward in this global age.

I therefore appeal to our friends and supporters all over the world to help Burma towards a sound future by giving generously to Prospect Burma. Every penny givien can make a difference to the prospects of our young people and hence of our country.
