Glyndebourne charity concert to raise funds for people in Ukraine
Glyndebourne has announced a special one-off charity concert on Sunday 3rd April to raise funds for the people of Ukraine.
Glyndebourne Festival Music Director Robin Ticciati will conduct the London Philharmonic Orchestra and a host of Glyndebourne artists – all of whom are donating their time – for an afternoon of music in the Glyndebourne auditorium, in solidarity with those affected by war.
All ticket sales and any other proceeds from this event will be donated to the Disasters Emergency Committee’s Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal.
Glyndebourne’s Artistic Director Stephen Langridge said: “In the middle of this appalling humanitarian crisis, people are suffering, and need immediate practical help.
“Alongside other performing arts organisations in the UK and beyond, we stand in solidarity with all those affected, and earnestly hope that this concert at Glyndebourne will be both a profound and beautiful musical dedication to Ukraine, and raise much-needed funds for the Disasters Emergency Committee’s Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal.”
