Toyota Kirloskar Motor announced today it will hold a charity concert - ‘The Toyota Classics 2010’ – World of Harmony - on November 12 at Jamshed Bhabha Theatre, National Centre for Performing Arts (NCPA), Mumbai.
The Orchestra Citta de Firenze, with well known conductor Lorenzo Castriota Skanderbeg, famous tenor Leonardo Melani and talented young Vietnamese pianist Luu Hong Quang, promises a wonderful evening of classical Italian music with concertos and symphonies by great composers such as Verdi, Puccini and Rossini, the auto maker said in a statement.
The programme would also feature a solo performance by Saxophonist Dr. Kadri Gopalnath. India is the last stop in the eight city tour. The orchestra has presented a repertoire of selected pieces from Italy, in Kuala Lumpur, Hanoi, Bandar Seri Begawan, Bangkok, Seoul, Taipei, and Manila.
Toyota Classics is a cultural programme initiated by Toyota in 1990. Over the past two decades, 154 concerts have been held across the globe raising funds for charitable organisations. This year the entire proceeds from the event would be donated to Child Rights and You (CRY), it said.
