On 18th May 2014, the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, Vivace Chorus, the London Philharmonic Choir, Wimbledon Choral Society and Twickenham Choral Society are performing Verdi's Requiem, conducted by Jeremy Backhouse.
To mark this event, some of the singers are taking part in a sponsored cycle ride from Paris, where Verdi wrote the Requiem, to the Royal Albert Hall. The journey starts in Paris on 25th April, ending 28th April in London.
We are proud to be supporting The Rainbow Trust in this venture.
29th April update:
We did it!
After 205.3 miles, 15 hours and 38 minutes in the saddle, a cumulative gain in elevation of nearly 6,000 feet over 4 days, and a (very respectable) 13 miles per hour average speed, the Singing Cyclists completed their Paris to London marathon bang on schedule at 2:30 on Monday afternoon of the 28th April 2014.
Please continue to donate using the Virgin Money Giving site. We will keep it open until the concert.
