Menuhin Competition violinists perform with Live Music Now at UCH Macmillan Cancer Centre

Patients were moved to tears as eleven young violinists in town for the Menuhin Competition performed with Live Music Now at UCH Macmillan Cancer Centre on the 12th and 13th of April 2016.

“We’re here with our grandson for his treatment so we don’t know how long we have to wait. We were just saying how lovely it is to have the music – so relaxing.  It can be very tense here while you’re waiting. They are very talented.  A lovely idea.” 

Menuhin founded Live Music Now in 1977, training and supporting young musicians to perform to for those in society for whom music could make a real difference.

“It is a source of joy to me that, even in these troubled and materialistic times, so many wonderful young musicians are inspired to use their gifts and accomplishments, not for their own glorification merely, but to communicate with others.” Yehudi Menuhin.
