Event description

Description

An evening of classical music with accomplished professional musicians performing inspiring music, and featuring the Australian premiere performance of A Himalaya Concerto, a concerto for clarinet, composed by English composer Stuart Brown in response to the disastrous earthquake that devastated parts of Nepal on 25 April 2015.

Renowned Queensland-based clarinetist Idris Harries will perform A Himalaya Concerto. It will be only the second performance of the Concerto, following its World Premiere in Trowbridge, England by Idris Harries in January 2019.

Renat and Hila Yusupov are renowned performers who also based in Queensland. They are a cellist and pianist respectvely, and their works include music from their native Uzbekistan. Both Renat and Hila are teaching music and working towards their PhD degrees in music performance at University of Queensland.

The performers have generously donated their performances to raise funds for the establishment of the first Bamboo Cafe near Kathmandu, Nepal. The first Bamboo Cafe opened in Nepal in late 2018, and the concert will help to meet the substantial cost of setting up the first of what is planned to be a chain of Bamboo Cafes in Nepal. They will be quality establishments providing employment for marginalised girls and women, high quality training in hospitality, and great coffee and food for local Nepali people and tourists.

Transform the Nations is staffed by volunteers who give their time and money to improve the plight of some of the most marginalised people in Nepal, Myanmar and India

The whole of the proceeds of this concert, after paying only the costs of its staging, will go directly to the Bamboo Cafe project.
