With this concert, the Konzerthaus Berlin supports the humanitarian aid of International Rescue Committee (IRC). IRC was founded in 1933 on the initiative of Albert Einstein and supports people worldwide who have to flee from political crises, war, persecution or natural disasters. All proceeds from ticket sales will go to the work of IRC – and thus to needy families worldwide. All musicians involved waive their fees.
