60th birthday piano fundraiser at St Paul's Knightsbridge

St Paul's Knightsbridge
St Paul's Church, Knightsbridge, has rather an unusual fundraiser on Saturday 25 April 2015 at the church when Thames Chamber Orchestra, conductor Keith Marshall will be performing Wagner's Siegfried Idyll, Mozart's Piano Concerto No 12 and Mozart's Symphony No. 40, with choral music performed by St Paul's Knightsbridge Choir, conducted by Stephen Farr. So far, so traditional. 

The fundraiser is to help raise funds for St Paul's to buy its own piano, as at the moment it does not have a viable one and despite being a regular concert and recording venue pianos are hired in. So a parishioner, John Sunderland is celebrating his 60th birthday by setting himself the challenge of performing Mozart's Piano Concerto No 12 at the concert with the Thames Chamber Orchestra. Sunderland hasn't played the piano in public since university, and hasn't played this concerto before! So do help him celebrate, and support the church in its efforts to raise the money for the piano. Tickets are available on-line,
