Launch of World Harmony Orchestra. A concert for/with Refugees

Come to this very unique event: the launch of the World Harmony Orchestra (whose members are professional musicians coming from all over the world), a concert raising funds for the Islington Centre for Refugees and Migrants where Romain Malan, artistic director of WHO, is a choir leader.

The theme is "All on a Journey", and all the pieces are related to refugees and exile: 
'Romanian Folk Dances' by Bartok (who was a refugee), 
-movements from Haydn 'Farewell' Symphony and 'Souvenir d'un lieu cher' by Tchaikovsky
-two world premieres by Arian, a Syrian refugee composer,  
-songs written and composed by Sita Brahmachari and Romain Malan, inspired by the work of members of the art and writing workshop led by Sita Brahmachari and Jane Ray at Islington Centre for Refugees and Migrants (artworks will be displayed). This is going to be very special, as these songs will be performed by the refugee choir from the Centre itself, accompanied by the orchestra.
Food and drink will be on sale.
