The MAE Foundation continues to attract the help and support of some of the finest musicians on the planet (see www.maefoundation.org.uk).
After the fundraising concerts featuring the great John Williams in London last year, another world-class guitar virtuoso is donating her services to the cause at a New Year Classical Celebrity Concert in Thailand on 28 December.
Xue Fei Yang, one of the world’s finest classical guitar players, will be performing at Silver Lake on December 28.
Xue Fei Yang is an international star now, but she was spotted by John Williams and others as a teenager, more than 15 years ago. Described by the New York Times as showing “feisty virtuosity, impeccable technique and sensitive musicianship”, Yang is recognised as one of the leaders of the new generation of classical guitarists.

The New Year concert, at the Silverlake Vineyard, near Pattaya, also features the MAE Foundation’s founder, Richard Harvey, on woodwinds and percussion, and Thailand’s 2008 Young Musician of the Year, Pongsakorn Lertsakworakul on marimba.
