The Orchestra and Choir of the Concert for Europe

A special performance of Beethoven’s 9th Symphony, with all profits going to Médicins sans Frontières

Beethoven’s 9th Symphony is a powerful statement of international co-operation.  The message of the final movement is clear and optimistic: the source of joy is to join together as fellow human beings. 

The performance will take place on a momentous night for the United Kingdom’s own international relations.  The Concert for Europe is a mixed group of professional and amateur players and singers, from all over Europe and beyond, who are coming together to celebrate Beethoven and Schiller’s message of universal brotherhood.

All performers are giving their time for free, to raise money for Médicins sans Frontières.
