Above: Iskandar Widjaja is anÂ adviserÂ at Musik Klasik Indonesia, an organization promoting classical music in the world’s fourth-most populous country.
One of Asiaâ€™s most gifted violinists is to appear at the Westin Hotel in Bali on August 24 for a one-off concert in aid of UNICEF’s Check Out for Children campaign, a project the children’s charity runs in partnership with Starwood Hotels.
German-born but of Indonesian descent, Iskandar Widjaja hasnâ€™t looked back since first picking up a violin at the somewhat precocious age of four. After attending several of Berlinâ€™s most prestigious music academies, Iskandar embarked on a career as a soloist and chamber musician before releasing his first record last year.
Iskandar will also work with some of Indonesiaâ€™s young violinists and collaborate with them in his evening performance, which will also feature a local childrenâ€™s choir.
Tickets for â€˜An Evening with Iskandar Widjajaâ€™ are priced at US$6, while limited places for an interactive session with Iskandar, which includes a CD signing and entry to the concert, are available for around US$27. For reservations, call +62 811 380 2975 or email email@example.com.
All proceeds will be donated directly to a UNICEF project providing education opportunities and vaccination programs to children across the Asia-Pacific region.
