Cambridge Fundraising Dinner

On 5 March 2020 Suzi Digby (Lady Eatwell) OBE, one of our distinguished Patrons, kindly hosted a fundraising dinner for Berlioz 150 in the magnificent mediaeval setting of the President’s Lodge at Queens’ College, Cambridge – of which her husband, Lord Eatwell, is the current President.

Violinist Madeleine Mitchell, accompanied by pianist Nigel Foster, played Berlioz’s Rêverie et Caprice as well as pieces by Massenet and Franck, with a specially arranged version of the Danse des Sylphes from Berlioz’s La Damnation de Faust as an encore. As well as raising valuable funds for the charity, the evening was notable for the atmosphere of enthusiasm and enjoyment it generated among our guests.
