Speaking about the evening Alison said “It?s such a thrill to be able to work with War Child to put on what looks to be an amazing event to highlight awareness and raise funds for the charity. I hope it’s the first event of many where I can contribute; War Child have a fantastic history of great events and I hope to add to this.”

The intimate evening, scheduled for 28th November, at London’s Bloomsbury Ballroom, will see once-in-a-lifetime collaborations putting a contemporary twist on classical music as pop, rock and classical collide.

Ben Knowles, Music Director at War Child said “War Child has a proud history of one-off collaborations, bringing some amazing partnerships together on the stage – Pavarotti and U2; Coldplay and Gary Barlow; Keane and Lily Allen.? Alison is a unique talent, a young female trumpeter with the ability to reach the broadest audience. War Child is excited to have her perform for us with such special musicians and to bring her to the same stage as two of the most remarkable voices in British rock and pop.? This is an event that will make a great, beautiful noise for children who themselves remain the silent, forgotten victims of war.”
