Students and alumni from Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance accompany Katherine Jenkins, Myleene Klass, Laura Wright, Alexander Armstrong, John Suchet, Alfie Boe, Aled Jones, Sol3 Mio, Miloš, Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen and others to support new charity

 

Classic FM has brought together students and alumni from Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance with the leading lights from the classical music world to create a new charity single.  The single will be recorded on 9 October and released on 10 October to raise money for Global’s Make Some Noise.

Global’s Make Some Noise is a new national charity.  For the first time, Global is uniting all its brands, Capital, Capital XTRA, Heart, Classic FM, LBC, Smooth, XFM and Gold, behind one cause, to improve the lives of disadvantaged children and young people.

Solos from Katherine Jenkins OBE, Laura Wright, Alexander Armstrong, Alfie Boe, Aled Jones, Miloš and other big names will complement the sounds of Sol3 Mio, Myleene Klass on the piano, Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen on percussion and John Suchet on the trombone.

Howard Goodall, presenter of Saturday Night at the Movies, and Classic FM’s composer in residence will write the charity single.  Julian Reynolds will conduct, collaborating with producer Anna Barry, who has worked with many big acts over the years and famously produced the official royal wedding album.

The charity single will be composed and recorded in Air Studios in North London, where students and alumni from Trinity Laban will form a mini-orchestra and choir.

Sam Jackson, managing editor of Classic FM, said: “It’s great that we are able to bring together our friends from the classical music world to help improve the lives of disadvantaged children by making some memorable noise for Global’s Make Some Noise.”

Katherine Jenkins OBE said: “I have always been passionate about music.  I am honoured to be able to use my passion to help others and raise money for Global’s Make Some Noise.”

All proceeds from the sale of the download will go to Global’s Make Some Noise charity appeal.  The money will support projects that help children and young people affected by illness, disability, bereavement or lack of opportunity, across the country.
