Welcome to the website for Concerts For Syria, a fundraising concert series that was founded in October 2015 and ran until February 2017. Please note the series is currently taking a break, and that any interim enquiries should be addressed to the administrator at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Concerts for Syria‘s aim is to facilitate and promote fundraising concerts and music events that support Syrian refugees.
After more than four years of conflict the ensuing refugee crisis has become one of the greatest humanitarian crises of today, affecting each and every one of us. Today 12 million Syrians have fled their homes because of conflict, 6 million of whom are children, and c.4 million Syrians in total are now refugees.
As musicians we have the tools and the opportunities to raise much-needed funds for refugees and to raise awareness of their situation and ways in which we can help.
The aim of this project is to harness the power of these tools and opportunities and seek to make a difference through music-making.
