Three young virtuoso string players are set to join forces in a concert to raise funds for Macmillan Cancer Support and the Yorke Trust.

The concert, featuring musicians Jack Liebeck, Meghan Cassidy and Jamie Walton, has been organised by West Norfolk Macmillan Events Group and Yorke Trust. It will take place at Sussex Barn, Burnham Market, on Friday, May 8.

The evening will begin at 7pm with a short reception, followed by the main concert featuring string trios by Beethoven, Mozart and Dohnányi.

Tickets for the event cost £25 per person and bookings can be made via the website or by telephone on 01328 823501.

Peter Coates, chairman of Macmillan’s West Norfolk fundraising group, says: “We are delighted to be able to bring this concert to Norfolk and to have the opportunity to raise money for these two worthy charities. We have organised a number of fundraising events in the past including fashion shows and balls, but this is our first music concert.

“It wouldn’t be possible without the commitment and dedication of the three musicians who are generously waiving their usual fee for this charity concert and I’d like to say a huge thank you to them all.”

Georgina Daniels, Macmillan fundraising manager for Norfolk, added: “I never cease to be amazed by the many ways our fundraising committees raise money for Macmillan. This concert is a great example of fundraising that shows just how fun, varied and different fundraising events can be.”
