One encyclopedic source tries to define music by saying that “the elements of music often have an implicit concept of time, pitch, and energy.” In a sense, that’s what Friday’s charity chamber concert is all about, a musical pitch to the public to lend our collective energies in time to help save the Nuchanart Anusorn School.
The concert is geared towards assisting this school for people of the rural hill tribe children in Wiang Papao, which was recently damaged due to storms that caused trees to fall onto the buildings. The school was founded in the 1930s, and is intended solely at providing educational opportunities to those who may not have the chance otherwise.
Perfomers: harpists Amanda Acosta and Judy Utley, pianist Reiko Yamadera and violist Andrew Filmer. Organizers: The Latin Catholic Community in Bangkok with the Tamnak Prathom Harp Centre.
Venue: Trinity Hall (pic above) of Saint Joseph's School on Convent Street, Silom.

The concert begins at 7pm. Donations of 500/300 baht invited, 250/150 baht for students. Guests of honor include the Cardinal of Thailand, a Nuncio of the Vatican, diplomats and members of royalty. For reservations call 06-6096052 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
