Top musicians including the distinguished tenor and 2022 Whittington Festival artist Mark Padmore donate their services in support of the DEC’s Ukraine Appeal, in the beautiful setting of St. Peter’s Belsize Park. The soloist in an innovative sextet version of Vaughan Williams’ classic Lark Ascending, written before WW1 but not performed until after it in a revised form, will be violinist and Whittington ‘23 Artist Rosa Hartley. The Whittington Festival players with festival resident star Andres Kaljuste at the helm provide generous musical support for this important cause. Supported by the Finzi Friends, with thanks
