Based just a mile from the Grenfell tower, OHP has been profoundly affected by the tragedy. Several of OHP’s staff are, and historically have been, residents of North Kensington, and one much-loved member of staff who was a Grenfell resident is currently missing.
‘The best way we know to commemorate and help the victims of this disaster is to make music and so that is what we will do. There has been a lot of emotion in the company since the events of that day, and our friend and colleague is mourned deeply. RPT deserve respect and admiration for everything they have been doing in the aftermath and we hope this event will provide the funds to help them continue their work in supporting the community.’ – Director of Opera, James Clutton and General Director, Michael Volpe
In no particular order, we would like to express our sincere thanks to the generosity of our friends, colleagues, suppliers and partners for donating their time, talent and services, without which this concert would not be possible.
