David Crown, conductor, is hosting a Come and Sing Fauré ‘Requiem’ together with a Ukrainian anthem. He will be joined by a professional orchestra and star soloists:
- Roderick Williams – Baritone
- Harriet Burns – Soprano
David Crown describes how this war has challenged him on so many levels. He felt he wanted to do what he could do, which is make music, as an offer of help and support to people caught up in this war.
Viscount Classical Organs is supporting this event and will be lending our Regent Classic Chamber organ (pictured below).
All proceeds from this event will be going to the following charities:
- The Ukraine Crisis Appeal run by The British Red Cross Society
- Ukraine Appeal run by Save the Children
The conductor, soloists and orchestra are all waiving their fees.

Unfortunately tickets have already been sold out but you are able to watch a livestream of the event on Sunday 3rd April, @ 5:00 pm.

I have had a passion for church organs since the tender age of 12. I own and run Viscount Organs with a close attention to the detail that musicians appreciate; and a clear understanding of the benefits of digital technology and keeping to the traditional and emotional elements of organ playing.
