The Albert Schweitzer Fellowship in Los Angeles enjoyed a benefit concert October 5 at the GRAMMY Museum in Los Angeles with performances by the Los Angeles Metropolitan Youth Orchestra and Christiane Engel, granddaughter of Dr. Albert Schweitzer.
Christiane is an internationally renowned classical pianist who has performed around the world and, like her grandfather, is a doctor and serves on the Board of Directors at the Albert Schweitzer Hospital in Lambaréne, Gabon in Africa. The Los Angeles Metropolitan Youth Orchestra consists of approximately 40 talented young musicians from the greater Los Angeles area.
“This event epitomized Dr. Albert Schweitzer,” said Dr. John Su, Program Director of The Albert Schweitzer Fellowship in Los Angeles. “We furthered a great cause even as we enjoyed wonderful music from talented artists.”
