Breathing Matters (University College London Hospitals Charity) supports research at University College London into lung diseases. The proceeds from our annual Christmas concert specifically fund research into lung infection and bronchiectasis and raise awareness of this relatively common but poorly understood chronic lung disease. The main symptom of bronchiectasis is recurrent chest infections and patients with severe disease may also have a problem with their breathing due to the chronic lung damage. Bronchiectasis affects an estimated 100,000 people in the UK and unfortunately there is no cure. Breathing Matters funds research work at University College London by doctors and scientists into why people develop bronchiectasis and how best to manage the chronic lung infections.
The Holst Singers is one of Britain's foremost choirs, described by the BBC as "a leading chorus on the international stage". In concert the choir is renowned for dramatic and engaging performances, described by The Times as "interactive concert going at its most revelatory" while the BBC Music Magazine states that "The Holst Singers sing with a spell bounding sense of atmosphere and crystal-clear textures..... supremely musical.
