Internationally renowned soprano Charlotte de Rothschild has performed at a special charity concert at Lane End Conference Centre in aid of Japanese earthquake and tsunami victims.
She was joined at Lane End by pianist Kanae Furomoto ahead of their forthcoming tour of Japan where they are performing at a number of concerts to help victims of the Tohoku earthquake and tsunami.
Buckinghamshire-based international conference venue Lane End hosted the charity event in conjunction with its sister company, EJEF (the Euro Japanese Exchange Foundation).
The event, which raised £1,500, was arranged by EJEF Managing Director Teruko Iwanaga OBE.
It was attended by more than 100 guests including EJEF chairman Professor William Barry; former British ambassador to Japan Sir Graham Fry and his wife Lady Toyoko Fry.
Ms Iwanaga thanked everyone for their valuable contributions toward the charity concert.
“The singing was beautiful and all the guests commented on how wonderful the venue’s grounds were maintained, how delicious the food was and how good the services have been. I am happy that we were able to display our teamwork to all our guests,” she said.
Charlotte de Rothschild is an internationally renowned soprano who sings in 17 languages. She has been hailed as a pioneer in Japan where she was one of the first foreigners to have recorded a complete CD of beautiful Japanese songs.
She tailors her recital programmes to specific themes, the best known being her Family Connections programme in which all the songs are by composers who were either friends, teachers or family ancestors from the last 200 years.
Her charity concert at Lane End was held at The Pavilion, one of five dedicated and completely self-contained conference venues at the 26-acre purpose-built residential conference centre.
The two-storey Pavilion is the largest conference venue at Lane End. Its meeting facilities include a 150-guest main conference room plus three breakout rooms and a kitchen, making it ideal for banquets.
The Pavilion’s elegant surroundings which include a private patio and garden gazebo mean that it is also much sought after by couples looking for wedding venues in Bucks.
It is perfect for couples looking for outdoor wedding venues that also offer high quality indoor facilities.
Lane End has launched a new weddings website ahead of its latest Weddings Open Day, which will be held on Sunday September 18.
Brides- and grooms-to-be will be able to meet with Lane End’s wedding planners to discuss the finer details of their special day over a glass of champagne and also tour the facilities and grounds.
Lane End Sales and Marketing Manager Heni Fourie said: “We are always honoured when couples choose us to host the most important day of their lives.
“Our 40 years of experience and the fact that we are independent mean that we can always create something extra special for them with the quality of our service, our facilities and our surroundings.”
