Three dual-piano concerts to benefit Free Health Clinic
September 11, 2023
Pianists and brothers David and Phillip Graham will be in concert together for three performances this fall to benefit the Northern Neck – Middlesex Free Health Clinic.
The concerts, featuring an audience-friendly program of selections from Broadway and Disney alongside Chopin, Gershwin, and other classical pieces, will be held at Irvington Baptist Church on Friday, September 29, and Saturday, September 30, at 7 p.m. and Sunday, October 1, at 3 p.m.
The concerts are free. In order to assure seating, reservations are encouraged by visiting EventBrite (search “Graham Brothers” or use the link GrahamBrothers.EventBrite.com ). Each performance should last just under an hour and a half, including a brief intermission.
The Grahams are both graduates of Washington and Lee University, where they double-majored in Business Administration and Music. Between 2007-2011 they gave numerous concerts to benefit specific non-profits, including the Clinic and the Steamboat Era Museum locally. Marriage, moves, schooling and other life events intervened, but in 2017 they reunited to help raise funds for a Steamboat Era Museum capital campaign, and now, six years later, they are excited to perform again to benefit the Free Health Clinic. The Graham Brothers have raised over $130,000 for various non-profits over the years and delighted thousands with their two-piano performances.
The Clinic serves close to 2,000 individuals annually in its Medical Clinic, Dental Clinic and Pharmacy, and over the years has delivered more than $130 million worth of health care. Today it operates on a $1.9 million annual budget, funded by community donations. It will be observing its 30th anniversary just a week after the concerts, on October 7.
Donation envelopes will be included in the concert programs. Supporters also can donate electronically via Venmo (@NN-MFHC) or Paypal (www.NNMFHC.org).
