On Sunday 17 June at 6pm, the One Tree Hill Sinfonia orchestra will perform Mahler’s 1st symphony (‘Titan’) to an audience at St Bart’s Church in Sydenham. All proceeds will go to support victims of the Grenfell Tower fire tragedy, through Justice4Grenfell*. Tickets are £12 (concessions £10) and there will even be a chance to ‘sit inside the orchestra’, which is conducted by the very well respected conductor and musician Adrian Varela.
This will be a First Anniversary Memorial concert for the tragedy, which began on 14 June 2017. Grenfell Tower is a 24-storey block of public housing flats in West London. The fire caused at least 72 deaths and over 70 injuries and, of course, there is huge controversy over the use of a particular type of cladding used in the construction of the Grenfell Tower building along with hundreds of others throughout the UK.
The One Tree Hill Sinfonia orchestra was established in 2014 and is made up of the very best local musicians (some professional, some amateur) along with students from some of the top music colleges in the UK. The orchestra aims to raise money for charity while, at the same time, bringing the very best symphonic music to local audiences.
You can get a flavour of what the One Tree Hill Sinfonia orchestra are about, and get a preview of them performing, in the following video clip:
* Justice4Grenfell aims to obtain justice for the victims and families who have been bereaved or affected by the terrible fire. It also aims to ensure that such a tragedy never happens again. More information about this community-led organisation can be found at justice4grenfell.org.
