About

Join The Institute of Cancer Research, London, on Tuesday 22 May for an evening of opera and song by world-class singers in the intimate setting of Spencer House. Featuring arias, ensembles and lieder by Mozart, Brahms, Wagner and Strauss, the event will celebrate and support The Institute of Cancer Research's world-leading science through glorious music. The evening will start at 6pm with a champagne reception followed by a recital given by a recital given by Ann Murray, Louise Kemeny, Toby Spence and Matthew Rose. Further drinks and canapes will follow in the stunning surroundings of the dining room and Terrace at Spencer House. The Institute of Cancer Research (ICR) has been carrying out pioneering research into the causes of cancer, and how it might be diagnosed, treated or prevented, for more than 100 years. Today, it is a world leader at discovering new targeted drugs for personalised cancer treatment and identifying cancer-related genes. The ICR discovers more new cancer drugs than any other academic centre in the world. Since 2005 the ICR has discovered 20 cancer drug candidates, progressed 10 drugs into clinical trials, and had abiraterone, a pioneering prostate cancer drug, approved by NICE for use in the NHS. A limited number of tickets are available for this exclusive evening of opera and song. There will also be an opportunity to make fundraising pledges throughout the event. All proceeds will go towards the ICR's world-leading research to defeat cancer.
