Messiah 4 Grenfell background

The unimaginable awfulness of the Grenfell Tower fire shocked the nation as much as any international disaster – indeed perhaps more so for it being right here, in London.

Following the thousands raised by Messiah 4 Haiti and Messiah 4 Philippines, the Concerts from Scratch Messiah edition conductor/editor David Meacock has decided to do Messiah 4 Grenfell, for three reasons. Please click on the image to read on, on p. 2  . . .

MOZART Requiem 2018 brings total so far raised for Grenfell Tower survivors to over £6K


Following the success of Messiah 4 Grenfell in October 2017, which with all professionals giving their services gratis and an unexpected late donation raised £5,765, and a further £330 from MOZART Requiem 2018 in April we have together now raised in excess of £6K to help survivors of the Grenfell Tower fire via the Family Action Charity.


Both Sing-ins took place in Holy Trinity Church, known as the Promers’ church as it’s just opposite the Royal Albert Hall which hosts the BBC Promenade Concerts.


The £330 has been donated to Family Action’s new Grenfell Community Service, providing long-term emotional & practical support.

PRESS RELEASE: Messiah 4 Grenfell raises nearly £6K

Click HERE for full press release with background notes.

A survey of Messiah 4 Grenfell participants chose the work and the £5 per ticket charity donation as the way to balance a desired continued charitable element and recognition that professionals can’t keep proffering their services for free, as there is no reward of a free pass for the proverbial supermarket checkout!


After a canter through the Requiem, the concert kicked off with the four soloists - Ilona Domnich (soprano) Lindsay Bramley (contralto), David Meacock (tenor) and John Lofthouse (bass) - accompanied by Tim Roe delighting choir and audience alike with contrasting favourite arias.


Mozart’s Requiem always inspires and we all left looking forward to making music together again just after the Proms, in September, singing British Choral Favourites.
