Night Under The Stars: Northern Lights

Night Under The Stars: Northern Lights
On Tuesday 6 November 2018, Night Under The Stars returns to the Royal Festival Hall presenting a concert called Northern Lights, in aid of The Passage, which runs the largest Resource Centre for homeless people in the UK used by up to 150 clients each day, offering hot food, showers and clothing, housing advice, heath care, training and employment services, as well as street outreach, homelessness prevention schemes and accommodation projects.

Night Under The Stars was launched in 2001 and since then has raised over £1.6 million for The Passage. This year's concert features music from Nordic countries performed by Toby Purser and the Orion Orchestra, with Grieg's Piano Concerto (performed by Icelandic pianist Víkingur Ólafsson), music from Peer Gynt, and music by Sibelius. Other performers include soprano Isa Katharina Gericke and mezzo-soprano Jennifer Johnston, and they will be joined by Streetwise Opera. Composer Raymond Yiu has arranged the traditional Swedish folk song Värmlandsvisan for Streetwise Opera and Jennifer Johnston to perform.

Full details from the Southbank Centre website.
