On Tuesday 1 August at 8pm, Opera Holland Park will give a performance of Verdi's Requiem in aid of the Rugby Portobello Trust to help the community following the Grenfell Fire. We are enormously grateful that so many members of our family of singers and musicians have agreed to donate their time and talent to help us achieve much needed funds for RPT who were, and continue to be, at the heart of efforts to assist the community affected by the fire. Among those who have donated their services and will perform in the concert are: Anne Sophie Duprels (soprano), Yvonne Howard (mezzo-soprano), Neal Cooper (tenor) and Barnaby Rea (bass), with the Opera Holland Park Chorus (including OHP principals and guest artists), the City of London Sinfonia and conductors Sian Edwards and Peter Robinson. The money from the concert will be used for a plethora of services being provided to victims and their families by RPT, including a summer programme of events for affected families and children.
Based just a mile from the Grenfell tower, OHP has been profoundly affected by the tragedy. Several of OHP's staff are, and historically have been, residents of North Kensington, and one much-loved member of staff who was a Grenfell resident is currently missing.
