    Event description

    After the positive response to its March 2024 London & Berlin concerts, as well as the April 2024 Berlin concert, the Make Freedom Ring group presents a follow-up fundraising concert in Berlin. As the situation in Gaza continues to be dire, with this concert we are fundraising to support the efforts of SOS Children's Villages Palestine and to send a message of hope.

    Join us at KühlhausBerlin at 6pm on May 20th for an evening of beautiful music. Doors are at 5.30pm.

    All donations for this event will go towards SOS Children's Villages Palestine. These concerts has been produced by a loose collective of musicians and culture workers across London and Berlin. You can find us on Instagram @makefreedomring2024 and at makefreedomring.co.uk.

    Artists will include Michael Barenboim, Raúl da Costa, Sindy Mohamed, Joaquín Riquelme García, Deniz Tahberer, Bakr Khleifi, and more, with a special reading by Deborah Feldman.

    Background

    On March 8 in London and March 10 in Berlin, the group Make Freedom Ring organized parallel concerts to fundraise for institutions providing humanitarian aid in Gaza, as well as to generate conversation and support. In total, these two concerts raised approximately 5,500€ for the foundations Medical Aid for Palestinians and the Ghassan Abu Sittah Children’s Fund without media support or an advertising campaign. On April 5th, Make Freedom Ring ran another concert at the KühlhausBerlin, raising funds for The Palestine Children's Relief Fund.

    These concerts were organized as a response to the classical music industry’s relative silence regarding the ongoing human casualties and loss of life in Gaza, in the hopes of not only showing support for the people of Palestine and those that are suffering, but of starting a conversation within the sector about this world event.
