Over 72,000 euros raised at charity concert

20 Feb 2024

With a special benefit concert on 20 December, the Berliner Philharmoniker and guests called for the release of all hostages kidnapped from Israel to Gaza and for the protection of the Palestinian and Israeli civilian population.

Thanks to the generous support of the audience, donations totalling €72,726.84 were collected.

The proceeds will go to three important projects: the Israeli Abducted and Missing Families Forum (with its Bring Them Home Now initiative) and two peace organisations in Israel and Palestine, Women Wage Peace and Women of the Sun, which work together for lasting peace between the two peoples. Each of these projects will receive a third of the donations.

On behalf of all those involved in this extraordinary concert, we would like to thank all donors most sincerely!

 

You can now watch the concert free of charge in our Digital Concert Hall
