PREVIEW: Common and Kind 2019 at Union Chapel, London

Graham Robson June 9, 2019

Common and Kind 2019, an uplifting concert series, and a collaborative effort from a vast gamut of the capital’s communities and international artists, returns to Union Chapel in Islington, London on Thursday, June 27 from 7pm.

Started by singer Michael Solomon Williams, the not-for-profit project is a culmination of workshops with schools in Brent, Hackney, Tower Hamlets and Haringey, working alongside the Islington Centre for Refugees and Migrants and Rainbows Across Borders (LGBT+ asylum seekers), who join forces with the London Humanist Choir and London International Gospel Choir to form an extraordinary 400-person choir for humanity, with the aim of forging inclusivity and strengthening community spirit.

Hosted by journalist and radio presenter Robin Lustig, this year the choirs are joined by solo artists from across the musical and performance spectrum, including West End star Cassidy Janson, UK jazz legends Tim Garland and Gwilym Simcock, Bengali pop icon Saida Tani, violin virtuoso Thomas Gould, New York soul sensation J. Hoard, ENO Harewood artist Nadine Benjamin with the Beethoven Orchestra for Humanity, and comedian and host of the BBC’s The Mash Report, Nish Kumar.
