Jacqueline du Pré Concert – 5 March

Tuesday, February 26th, 2013

A special evening in aid of the Musicians Benevolent Fund at Wigmore Hall

The Jacqueline du Pré concerts are held annually to perpetuate the memory of Jacqueline du Pré, one of the greatest cellists of her generation, who died of multiple sclerosis at the age of 42. Since 1996 these concerts have raised money for different musical and medical charities. This year the concert is held in aid of the Musicians Benevolent Fund.

The funds raised will be dedicated to the Fund’s Jacqueline du Pré Special Fund which supports musicians with a serious disability. The Fund currently helps more than thirty musicians with MS, other degenerative diseases or spinal cord injuries.
