Have a CARE - Royal Albert Hall hosts 2010 charity gala event with David Arnold and Jimmy Carr
CARE International has a pretty direct tag-line and that is "Defending dignity. Fighting poverty". It's a sentiment that is catching on fast, spurring on its ambassador David Arnold to coordinate the first Concert for CARE in 2009 at the Brixton Academy. The aid-charity is dedicated to raising money for the most hard-bitten communities ravaged by war and disaster.
This year sees Arnold carrying out the same idea, but with a change in venue to reflect the choice of line-up. 2010 will gather together some of the leading names in soundtrack and classical-composition, as well as comedians and guest artists throughout the evening. Tickets are on sale now and cost from £25 upwards plus fees. All profits will go to CARE.
Music will be performed by a the renowned Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and will feature works by (also conducted by on the night, in many cases) Craig Armstrong, Anne Dudley, George Fenton, Rachel Portman and David Arnold himself, amongst others. You may not know all of those names, but if you have seen Shrek, Bourne, Romeo and Juliet, James Bond or Harry Potter, you will have heard some of the names in that line-up - they have all contributed music to some of the biggest box-office successes in recent years.
Also expected to appear amongst the comedians is Jimmy Carr, with other big names to be announced soon.
