Glyndebourne announces line up for its Ukraine fundraiser
Glyndebourne has announced the programme for its special one-off concert taking place this Sunday, 3 April, to raise funds for the people of Ukraine.
Glyndebourne 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.
Artists appearing include:
Danielle de Niese
Rodrigo Porras Garulo
Huw Montague Rendall
Sir John Tomlinson
and The Glyndebourne Chorus
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.’
