Today I’m giving a short fundraising recital at home for friends as part of Macmillan Cancer Support’s World’s Biggest Coffee Morning, an annual event which brings people together to socialise and raise money for Macmillan.
A number of my close women friends have had cancer in the last couple of years, and tragically one, Karen, died in 2010, leaving two young sons. I hope my tiny contribution will enable to Macmillan Cancer Support to continue its important work.
The programme for the concert is:

Allemande & Sarabande from French Suite No. 5 in G, BWV 816
