The German violinist will put out Save the Children collecting boxes at two concerts in Hamburg’s Elbphilharmonie next week.

She and the orchestra will donate their fees from one concert to child relief in Yemen.

Anne-Sophie said today: ‘More than 85,000 children have starved to death in Yemen since the beginning of the war, more have died from the effects of malnutrition than from bombs and bullets.’

    Good for her.

  • Beinisch says:

    This is a wonderful contribution to society.

  • Robert Groen says:

    Well? Anyone going to say anything in support of her? Knowing this blog I’m waiting for the accusations of cynical self-promotion……

    • Brian says:

      Not a critical word from me on this; I only hope she calls out the evil that is causing this – the Saudis and the Trump administration feeding them the weaponry to continue this horror.

    Thumbs up !!!
