World famous piano duo to perform at charity dinner

British pianists Nettle and Markham

British pianists Nettle and Markham, voted the world's most distinguished piano duo, are to perform at The Sunera Foundation's Gala Charity Dinner at the Oak Room, Cinnamon Grand Hotel in Colombo on September 9. Nettle and Markham's repertoire has been specifically selected and tailored for this high profile evening, with music ranging from classical to popular.

This is the duo's second visit to Sri Lanka, after performing in 1985 with the Symphony Orchestra of Colombo. Their distinguished career spanning over 30 years has provided them accolades across all continents and their recordings are consistently hailed by critics as 'must haves' for discerning music fans.

Sunethra Bandaranaike, Founder and Chairperson of the Sunera Foundation said, "We are delighted to welcome artistes of the calibre of Nettle and Markham to appear at our annual Gala Charity Dinner in the luxurious surroundings of the Cinnamon Grand Hotel in Colombo. This is a 'must attend' night for all who appreciate being entertained by exceptional music and want to help raise money for a very worthy cause- disadvantaged Sri Lankans."

"It's a huge honour to perform at what is one of Sri Lanka's charity fundraising nights of the year. Sunera Foundation plays a vital role in helping all disadvantaged Sri Lankans whatever their background. We are delighted to play a role in helping to raise the profile and money for the charity through entertaining music," said David Nettle.

Tickets could be had from The Sunera Foundation, # 39/1/1, Elibank Road, Colombo 5. For more details contact: 2504041 / 0112504043.
