L’Orchestre du Monde – an ensemble that brings together virtuoso classical musicians in aid of humanitarian causes – returns to Cadogan Hall this October to support The Gurkha Welfare Trust’s earthquake response programme in Nepal. Hosted by Joanna Lumley, a patron of the trust, the concert will see conductor and Orchestre du Monde founder Janusz Piotrowicz lead the orchestra as they perform Beethoven’s Coriolan Overture and Violin Concerto and Schubert’s Symphony No 9, with French violinist Alexandra Soumm as soloist.

Five pounds from every ticket sold will go to The Gurkha Welfare Trust, which estimates £17.5m is needed over the coming years to rebuild the homes and lives of the Gurkha veterans, their families and communities following last year’s devastating earthquakes.
