Video of the day: Amazing Grace – Hope for Grenfell

Gramophone Thu 14th June 2018

Will Todd conducts the Opera Holland Park Chorus and the City of London Sinfonia at the Grenfell Memorial Gala

Opera Holland Park marked the one year anniversary of the Grenfell disaster with a special gala performance on Wednesday evening, raising money for the Rugby Portobello Trust. The gala was given in memory of Debbie Lamprell, who was a member of the OHP's staff when she died in the Grenfell fire, and for all victims and their families and friends. 

Will Todd led the massed choir and City of London Sinfonia in a new orchestral arrangement of his setting of 'Amazing Grace', which you can experience below:

Funds raised by this year’s memorial concert will enable more than 100 children and young people from North Kensington to attend ‘residential’ trips, week-long visits to the coast and countryside, which allow them to try new activities and escape the pressures of everyday life.
