Vocal singers at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance will be part of a major performance of Beethoven's Symphony No. 9 at St Paul's Cathedral on 23 May in support of the Lord Mayor's Appeal.
Trinity Laban's singers will join soprano Elizabeth Llewellyn, mezzo-soprano Sarah Connolly, tenor Andrew Kennedy, baritone Mark Stone, the English Chamber Orchestra and the Choir of the 21st Century in a performance of Beethoven's 'Choral Symphony', conducted by Howard Williams.
Head of Trinity Laban's Vocal Studies, Linda Hirst, said: "Choral singing - especially in the Chapel Choir and Chamber Choir - is an important part of vocal training at Trinity Laban. Many of our alumni are members of London's professional choirs, from which they are emerging as soloists.
"Trinity Laban's unrivalled music programmes build on over a century's experience to deliver a high standard of professional training across a broad range of genres and styles, attracting students from all over the world."
The theme of the appeal, 'The City in Society' reflects the City of London's major contribution and wide-ranging commitment to the society it serves in the 21st century. The Appeal is focussing on the City as a global centre for philanthropy, and particularly on its involvement in fostering the arts. By giving a platform to its chosen charities, the Appeal aims to encourage and challenge people to give more and do more to secure the future for the next generation, whether by supplying more music, lifting children out of poverty, safeguarding the environment, or protecting and enabling access to art in all its forms.
