AMADE Charity concert draws big names and big bucks

On Sunday 19th May the Monte Carlo Philharmonic Orchestra, along with cellist Gautier Capuçon and conductor, violinist and UNICEF Good Will Ambassador Maxim Vengerov, played for HRH The Princess of Hanover and an audience of music fans.

More than €17,000 was raised, the proceeds of which will go to AMADE’s ‘Capoeira for Peace’ programme. The programme has aided nearly 10,000 former child soldiers in the war-torn Democratic Republic of Congo to regain hope and protect them from future violence, exploitation and abuse.
