“Beethoven for the Rohingya: A Concert of Solidarity for the Rohingya Refugees,” a fundraising concert presented by Music for Life International, will take place on Monday, January 28, at Carnegie Hall in New York City. Music for Life is founded by conductor George Mathew, with professional symphony orchestra musicians from multiple organizations all donating their services. Proceeds from the concert will go to Doctors Without Borders’ medical-relief efforts to members of the Rohingya population who have fled from Myanmar to Bangladesh, Thailand, the Philippines, and other neighboring countries. The program will feature David Amram’s Elegy for Violin and Orchestra and Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony, with vocal soloists and the Montclair State University Chorale. George Mathew and David Amram are the concert’s conductors.
