Music for a Summer Evening
Music for a Summer Evening, a classical concert in aid of Pancreatic Cancer UK, was held on Wednesday 24 June at Middle Temple Hall in London. The purpose of the event was to raise the profile of the charity and engage new contacts and is organised in conjunction with the Development Fund Board. The event was inspired by James Brown (Development Fund Board member) and in memory of his brother who died from pancreatic cancer and would have been 61 years old on the night of the event.
150 guests enjoyed the music of the Brodsky Quartet and Martin Roscoe playing Beethoven and Brahms. The interval was livened up by an auction of 10 items ranging from helicopter flights over London to an exclusive opportunity to conduct the Philharmonia Orchestra at the Royal Festival Hall.
