L'orchestre du Monde: The World's Finest Musicians Play for Global Causes
When you experience L'orchestre du Monde, you experience the world's most accomplished musicians, led by one of the most impressive conductors in modern times. But that's not all, because when you attend a L'orchestre du Monde performance, you do so while supporting humanitarian causes from around the world. This is why L'orchestre du Monde and The World Trust have teamed up for more than 20 years to put on their bi-annual performance event.
Shows are performed at Cadogan Hall, in the royal borough of Kensington and Chelsea, London. Performances take place bi-annually on the third Tuesday of May and October, with each show supporting a nominated cause. Selections performed vary by show, but generally include standards and favourites, such as Beethoven, Brahms, Mozart, and Schubert. Soloists and exact lineup change from performance to performance based on need and availability.
The World Trust is the primary beneficiary of all performances put on by the orchestra. In supporting humanitarian causes around the globe, they have provided assistance to more than 50 charities. Patrons of The World Trust include outstanding leaders in humanitarian causes worldwide. Supporters include actors and actresses famous for their charitable activism, such as Dame Maggie Smith and Dame Judy Dench, as well as political and religious leaders worldwide, such as South African social rights activist and retired bishop, Desmond TUTU.
Musicians for L'orchestre du Monde are soloists, quartets, and orchestras from the world's finest performance groups. These world-class musicians come from applauded organisations such as the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, the London Symphony Orchestra, and the BBC Symphony Orchestra. Every member is recognised as having achieved the upper tier of performance standards in their discipline.
The orchestra was formed in 1987 by Polish conductor Janusz Piotrowicz, with the goal of supporting humanitarian causes. Through their performances, world-class musicians have brought attention and support to causes around the world that progress education, ensure health, and increase safety for millions. Piotrowicz, a prodigy at a young age, performed for Pope John XXIII at age 7 and attended Eton College, where he became the first honorary music scholar in school history. After a successful and decorated career, he started the World Trust and L'orchestre du Monde to make a positive difference in the world.
This orchestra performs selections of the finest music from centuries past, written and arranged by the greatest musical masters of all time. Selections have included Mozart's Symphony No. 8, Beethoven's Coriolan Overture, and Mendelsohnn's Symphony No. 4. Headlining soloists have performed in the past with upcoming artists, including Alexandra Soumm, performing Beethoven's Violin Concerto.
Cadogan Hall was completed in 1907. Originally designed as a Byzantine-style church by Robert Fellows Chisholm, Cadogan Hall benefits from unique acoustics that have drawn wide acclaim. The intimate venue allows every audience member to be in close proximity to the stage in a comfortable atmosphere. Holders of L'orchestre du Monde tickets should expect a powerhouse performance of orchestral works, as conductor Janusz Piotrowicz is celebrated for his revelatory and electrifying interpretations. A given night might include the Polish conductor's interpretations of Mozart's sublime Flute Concerto No. 2, Mozart's Symphony No. 41 (Jupiter), and Beethoven's revered Symphony No. 7.
