A Dazzling, musical night in Ca'n Reus

This week we saw the most successful concert of many that we have held in the entrada of Ca'n Reus over the last eleven years. Our great friend, pianist Philip Lange, who has now performed on twelve occasions at Ca'n Reus, was joined by the beautiful and talented flautist, Nadine Asin. Asin has played with the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra in New York and the New York Philharmonic and is recognised as one of the the most prominent flautists in the United States today.

They played a programme of Bach, Schubert and Poulenc and the audience could not resist humming along to a perfect rendition of Danny Boy and a selection American musical favourites.

Artists and audience then spilled on to the terrace and, under a full moon, dined and chatted until midnight.

For the first time, we asked people to pay for the evening and we raised a fantastic 1600 euros for the orphanage in Romania of which Sue is a trustee
(friendsof childreninromania.org).

In all, a perfect evening.
