On May 20, 2017 George Gagnidze will be one of the artists taking part in the prestigious benefit operatic gala concert dedicated to HIV and AIDS patients of the Deutsche AIDS-Stiftung in Bonn. On this occasion he will sing “Cortigiani” from Rigoletto and “Nemico della patria” from Andrea Chénier.
George Gagnidze is delighted to be able to help raising funds with his participation: “It is very important for me to take part in benefit events”, says the Georgian baritone. “When I am free, I always accept offers for benefit concerts, and to help HIV and AIDS patients is particularly important. It is still one of the most dangerous diseases and worldwide millions of people are infected.”
