- Étude No. 1 “Pour les cinq doigts d’après Monsieur Czerny”
- Études, Op. 10 & Op. 25
- Panos Karan
The wildlife charity Born Free Foundation is thrilled to be working with internationally acclaimed pianist and conductor Panos Karan who performs Chopin’s 24 formidable, evocative and popular Études, while also speaking about his charity Keys of Change, which uses music to improve the lives of young people living in extraordinary circumstances around the world.
Greek-born Panos, who has performed in some of the world’s top venues, including Carnegie Hall in New York, Boston Symphony Hall and Tokyo Suntory Hall, has a passion to bring classical music to deprived audiences around the world and with music education improve the lives of children and young people in need.
The event is raising funds to support Born Free’s Global Friends programme, which supports schools and communities alongside our wildlife projects in Africa and Asia, and Keys of Change musical education programmes from Ecuador and the Amazon, to India and tsunami-stricken Fukushima. Tickets are limited and will sell out fast, so don’t miss the opportunity to be involved!
The evening is hosted by Born Free Foundation President Will Travers OBE.

“I can’t tell you how thrilled I am to announce the launch of ‘Children & Wildlife in Harmony’. This glorious project brings together three of my greatest passions – classical music, and the well-being of wild animals and children. I do hope you will join us for this very special evening”
