JOIN international concert pianist David Helfgott and other outstanding musicians for a musical feast on Sunday, March 8, and at the same time help a family in crisis.
This very special concert will help the family of two-year-old Alec Brinklow, who was recently diagnosed with leukaemia. The family must now relocate to Sydney where Alec will receive treatment. The financial burden is onerous, which is why David and others have offered their talents to help the family cope.
The highlight of the afternoon will be a repeat performance of Gershwin's 'Rhapsody in Blue' for two pianos with Helen Bowie joining David.
Other musical delights include flautist Suzanne Sherrington performing Poulenc's Clarinet and Piano Sonata with David, the Bellingen Youth Orchestra, and the Surco Group.
Tickets are adults $25 and students $15, available from L.J.Hooker in Coffs Harbour and Stepping Stone Travel in Bellingen. Phone bookings can be made on 6655 9326.
The concert will be held at Bellingen High School at 2.30pm.
