about this event
The programme will feature Fauré’s Piano Quartet No.2 in G minor, as well as solos and other chamber works.
Founded in 1963 by celebrated violinist Yehudi Menuhin and based in Cobham, The Yehudi Menuhin School provides a nurturing environment, combining an intense musical provision with academic studies, for an international community of highly gifted children, all of whom are selected based on their talent and potential, regardless of their economic background. Specialist tuition is provided by an extraordinary faculty of teachers, many of whom are internationally recognised performers and pedagogues.
With performance being a key element of the school’s provision, our young musicians can be heard both at The Menuhin Hall, where we host a range of concerts for our pupils and visiting celebrities, as well as during our busy programme of external engagements, including major festivals in the UK and overseas. In keeping with Yehudi Menuhin’s belief in the importance of giving to the community, both staff and pupils regularly support local state schools with their musical provision, and present concerts for care homes, churches, and community events.
Thanks to the generosity of Friends and supporters, the school remains a needs-blind institution, providing life-changing opportunities for children of all backgrounds.
