Pianist raises over £50,000 for Middle East Christians + concert schedule


Pianist Carl Bahoshy has raised more than £50,000 for the charity Iraqi Christians In Need through an ongoing series of piano and organ recitals across the UK.

Carl told ICN: "My parents are both Christians from Iraq and so I inherently feel an identity towards both their culture and faith. In view of the increasing destruction of churches in Iraq - where the early churches were founded and flourished - and the plight of Christians and peoples of other minority faiths to Erbil, I realised I had a musical gift that could help raise monies on their behalf.

" Iraqi Christians In Need (ICIN) is one charity that provides direct financial relief to displaced refugees in northern Iraq. We know that monies raised in aid of ICIN are making a real difference as monies are being spent predominantly on medical aid and shelter in the form of family caravans, with all aid channelled through the Bishops of the churches."
