Fundraising Concert: A Night Under The Stars

Join us for 'Stars and Stripes' on Tuesday 8 November

On the day of the US Presidential Election, we have a starry line up of top international soloists performing much-loved American classics, including music by Bernstein (West Side Story, Candide), Gershwin (Rhapsody in Blue, Porgy and Bess), Copland (Old American Songs), Barber (Adagio for Strings) and Rodgers (South Pacific, Carrousel). We even have a world premiere arrangement of Sousa’s Stars and Stripes Forever, featuring James O’Donnell on the Royal Festival Organ.

In hosting the event, BBC Radio 3 broadcaster Petroc Trelawny will be joined by satirist and writer Armando Iannucci (Veep, The Thick of It) and impressionist Jon Culshaw (Spitting Image, Newzoids), providing topical political comedy alongside the music. HRH Princess Michael of Kent will also be in attendance.

Whatever your political persuasion, we look forward to seeing you on Election Night to celebrate the Great American Dream, and to unite in support of an organisation that truly transforms people’s lives.  Get your tickets here or phone 020 7592 1856.
