This concert was to try and help and support those of us who have been based here throughout the pandemic, and to give us something to work towards, a performance to lift our spirits, and the opportunity to earn some money through donations. As you can imagine, this pandemic had decimated our profession and it has been incredibly difficult for us all, particularly those of us who couldn't get home. And as the arts are  in such dire straits at the moment, it is hard to know when things will properly start looking up for us all. 

We raised over £35,000 to help our singers, and would like to thank each and every one of you who helped us along the way.

These funds were distributed equally amongst the singers to help relieve the stress of enforced unemployment and went some way to helping them retain their place here while they waited for the opera and performance industry to return to some semblance of normality OR helped them towards a move home to New Zealand to gift their home country with the skills and joy they have learned in honing their craft internationally.
