For the 12th time in a row, Deloitte Luxembourg and the Luxembourg Philharmonic Orchestra are organising a charity concert for the benefit of the Luxembourg Red Cross. The concert will take place this Friday, 6 February at the Philharmonie. With 1200 expected visitors, the 2015 concert is continuing this fruitful annual tradition, which enables numerous Red Cross projects supporting underprivileged citizens in Luxembourg.
Distinguished guests supporting the event are expected, such as the Minister of Finance, Pierre Gramegna. For this remarkable evening, the Luxembourg Philharmonic Orchestra, under the direction of Michael Nesterowicz and with François-Frédéric Guy at the piano, will perform pieces from Ludwig van Beethoven, Leonard Bernstein, George Gershwin and Arturo Màrquez.
The revenues from this year’s edition will be used for the Red Cross project “Perspectives” that offers help to young adults in Luxembourg who have been affected by the economic crisis and who are facing integration difficulties. By offering assistance in finding a job or a place to live Red Cross helps them to take their destinies into their own hands.
Yves Francis, Managing Partner of Deloitte Luxembourg states: “Supporting this project, as all other noble endeavours of the Red Cross, is a huge honour for our firm. Giving a new momentum to young people in distress by accompanying them in a reintegration process that will allow them to regain confidence and self-esteem is of the utmost importance.” Acknowledging the work of the NGO for the Grand Duchy, he resumes: “Their social projects match our ideals, which is why we will continue to contribute to the noble cause of this great organisation through a sincere and engaged partnership.”
The Charity Concert will take place at the Grand Auditorium in the Philharmonie and will be opened by the vice-president of the Luxembourg Red Cross, Rita Krombach.
