A charity concert supporting war victims in Ukraine on May 25th will take place at 8 pm in an ancient church in the heart of the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea. The evening programme includes songs and arias of the world-famous composers such as Bach, Handel, Mozart, Verdi and Wagner.
Between stimulus and response, there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom.
Today we all live in a time of chaos when we inevitably seek solace, a place where we can forget everything that's swirling around us. And we would like to give you an opportunity, at least for a while, to get away from the hustle and bustle, heavy thoughts and worries and enjoy beautiful music.
The pieces you're going to hear will make you think about eternal values such as peace, love, mercy, humanism, selflessness and compassion. The programme will be performed by young and talented musicians whose primary goal is to bring light and contemplation through their art.
