We returned to the Union Chapel in 2018 for another extraordinary concert. This year the massed choir of four hundred included school partnerships for the first time, bringing children from a range of backgrounds together from across London, along with adult choir & refugee partnerships and a sensational line-up of solo artists.
Featured artists in 2018 were New York soul sensation J. Hoard, UK hip-hop legend Ty, singer-songwriter and the UK’s 2018 Eurovision entry SuRie, percussion virtuoso Bernhard Schimpelsberger with pianist Chris Gall, ENO Harewood Artist soprano Nadine Benjamin with the Beethoven Orchestra for Humanity, Bengali pop star Saida Tani and author, columnist and activist George Monbiot with folk singer Ewan McLennan.
We were very grateful to have received grant support of £2000 from Postcode Community Trust to help us deliver Common and Kind 2018. Postcode Community Trust is a grant-giving charity funded entirely by players of People’s Postcode Lottery.
