Theresa May hosts homeless classical folk

press release:

Last night, Prime Minister Theresa May welcomed soprano Rebecca Evans, baritone Mark Stone, composer Raymond Yiu at 10 Downing Street, as part of an event for supporters of The Passage – London’s largest homelessness charity.

The reception – one of the Prime Minister’s first since taking office in July – also launched this year’s “A Night Under The Stars” concert, which raises money for The Passage’s work with homeless and vulnerable people.

  • I get a sense of improvement on the landscape when a PM considers that classical artists can raise funds for charity — that it is not the sole province of the rockers.

    Also a very good cause — good to see a Tory PM attach herself to it.

    Am I really beginning not to despair of a Tory government in the UK? Must go outside to check for flying swine…:)

  • Speechless! May dares to host a classical event without either Simon Rattle and/or Nicholas Kenyon present??!! Lese majeste….
