Cadogan Hall will host a fundraising concert for victims of Grenfell Tower fire in September. The London tragedy killed at least 80 people on 14 June, with an unknown number yet to be accounted for, and left many more homeless.
The concert has been organised by young artists, with support and generous assistance from Cadogan Hall, Royal Opera House, Garsington Opera, Opera magazine, International Opera Awards and leading arts professionals.
Taking place on 17 September, and hosted by BBC Radio 3 presenter Petroc Trelawny, the concert programme sees opera stars like mezzo-soprano Christine Rice, tenor Stuart Skelton and soprano Ailish Tynan perform with pianist Eugene Asti and “a collaborative Super Orchestra” of musicians from some of London’s leading orchestras. The programme features compositions by Mozart, Purcell and Puccini, as well as a new piece by contemporary composer Rebecca Dale. Ticket prices range from GBP20-GBP65 (€22-£72 + booking fee).
All proceeds will go to the London Emergencies Trust to support those in the local communities affected by the fire.
