Common and Kind 2018

Common and Kind returns to the Union Chapel for another extraordinary concert. In just two years since its birth in 2016, Common and Kind concerts have featured an exceptional array of world-leading artists from across the musical spectrum. This year the massed choir of four hundred includes school partnerships for the first time, bringing children from a range of backgrounds together from across London, along with adult choir & refugee partnerships and a sensational line-up of solo artists and ensembles. Featured solo artists in 2018 are New York soul sensation J. Hoard, UK hip-hop legend Ty, singer-songwriter and the UK’s 2018 Eurovision entry SuRie, percussion virtuoso Bernhard Schimpelsberger in duo with German pianist Chris Gall, ENO Harewood Artist soprano Nadine Benjamin with the Beethoven Orchestra for Humanity, Bengali pop star Saida Tani and award-winning author and Guardian columnist George Monbiot in his collaboration with folk singer Ewan McLennan.
