A new charity concert at Cadogan Hall, London in June will help raise money to bring music education to children in refugee camps and natural disaster shelters.

On 11 June, the Born Free Foundation and Keys of Change will present Children & Wildlife in Harmony, a charity concert to raise money to provide classical music education to children in Kenya, Siberia, Japan, Ecuador and around the world.

The funds raised will go to the Keys of Change charity, founded by the internationally-renowned Greek pianist Panos Karan.

Panos Karan will perform Chopin’s formidable Études, while speaking about his charity Keys of Change, which uses music to improve the lives of young people living in disadvantaged circumstances around the world.

Karan has performed at Carnegie Hall in New York, Boston Symphony Hall and Tokyo Suntory Hall, and is passionate about the positive effect of music education and awareness on the lives of children and young people in need.

The event will also raise money to support the Born Free Foundation’s Global Friends programme, which supports schools and communities alongside wildlife projects.
