On Friday 13 May YMS students David Horvat (violin) and Damir Durmanovic (piano) were invited to perform at a special concert at Madrid's Reina Sofia School of Music held to mark the centenary of Lord Menuhin's birth and to raise funds for the Red Cross in its efforts to care for the refugees stranded in Greece. Also performing were students from the Reina Sofia School taught by Professors Zakhar Bron and Anna Chumachenco.

Lord Menuhin made frequent visits to the Madrid School which has a room named after him and also makes a biennial award in his name to distinguished musicians who have 'integrated the arts and education'.

The concert was also attended by YMS Headmaster Dr Richard Hillier and governor Zamira Menuhin Benthall with her husband Jonathan.
