The orchestra, made of musicians from the LSO, RPO, BBC Phil, Philharmonia, Britten Sinfonia & more will perform Beethoven's 5th symphony, Mahler's Kindertotenlieder with internationally acclaimed mezzo-soprano Sarah Connolly, and a world premiere by award-winning Syrian composer Malek Jandali.

--

Almost 2 million Syrian children have been forced to flee their homes.

The world has been shocked by the heart-breaking images of children's bodies washing up on the shores of Europe. This year alone, more than 2,700 people have died trying to reach Europe, the majority of them drowning in the Mediterranean.

By far the largest number of refugees are from Syria. In the past three months, 80 per cent of refugees crossing the border between Greece and Macedonia have come from Syria.

Unicef is one of the few organisations working inside Syria, as well as delivering humanitarian aid across the region. Unicef is working around the clock to make sure that Syrian children and refugees are provided with life-saving supplies such as clean water, medicine and psychosocial support. With no end to the conflict in sight, we are focusing on strengthening infrastructures such as water and power systems.

It is not enough for the world to be shocked by images. Shock must be matched by action. Please help Unicef to keep children safe, both at home and where they are seeking refuge.
