Concert to raise funds for GLC school trust

5 July 2010

A classical concert featuring leading artists is to raise funds for a new trust launched by Govan Law Centre to support local schoolchildren.

The standalone charitable trust will provide funds to help pay for additional school materials, educational visits and school trips for children who otherwise could not afford to enjoy such opportunities, as well as providing a number of specific educational bursaries to help local children progress with their studies.

To be held in Glasgow on the evening of Friday, 30 July, the concert will feature gifted young classical musicians through the generosity of clients of GLC's national Education Law Unit.

Cellist Jacob Shaw has studied at the Yehudi Menuhin School in London and the École Normale de Musique de Paris. He has peformed across Europe and the USA, and his debut album is due for release this year.

Violinist Suyeon Kang was born in South Korea and brought up in Australia, where she was named the Australian Young Performer of the Year 2005. In 2007 she moved to Germany to study with Professor Daniel Gaede, ex-concertmaster of the Vienna Philharmonic, and since 2009 has been working as his assistant.

The concert will be held in Adelaides Auditorium, 209 Bath Street, Glasgow. The programme will be finalised shortly, and will include an outstanding young classical vocalist. Ticket prices are £10 for adults and £5 for children. All proceeds will go to the trust fund.
