London Euphonia Orchestra's charity concert

London Euphonia Orchestra (LEO) is performing a charity concert on Saturday 18th June 2016, proudly fundraising for Hand in Hand for Syria.

Hand in Hand for Syria is a UK charity, established in 2012, providing vital humanitarian aid inside Syria, in areas not reached by other aid agencies. Their focus is in the health sector concentrating particularly on women and children. HIHS has established new hospitals in war-torn areas of Syria devoid of basic healthcare, with their response benefitting nearly 2000 refugees every single day. More information about the outstanding work they do is demonstrated here:

LEO first learnt of the incredible work done by Hand in Hand for Syria through Rola Hallam, the Medical Director of the charity and now close friend of LEO.  In 2013, Rola’s work in the aftermath of an attack on a school playground in Aleppo was captured by the BBC programme ‘Panorama’ and the footage shown across the world. You can see an extract of this below:

LEO, founded in 2013, is an incredibly diverse yet cohesive mix of amateur musicians of all ages, from all backgrounds, professionals to students, with co-founder and Musical Director, Dario Peluso, conducting.

The concert programme has been specifically chosen to mark the Syrian humanitarian crisis and pay tribute to the work done by HIHS.  This includes performances of Johannes Brahms’ beautiful Schicksalslied, in collaboration with London choir, Mary Ward Singers and Gustav Mahler’s deeply evocative Kindertotenlieder, with baritone Oskar McCarthy.
