Mark Padmore has an international career in opera, concert and recital and was renowned for his performance as an evangelist in the St. Matthew and St. John Passions with the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra.

During the event, guests will have exclusive access to Ditchley Park and can visit the ground floor, which is not open to the general public.

A spokesperson for Hands Up said: “As the world looks away, the funding that Syrians rely on to survive this endless conflict is scarce. I recently visited the Syrian border and the people there feel like they have been forgotten when their need is still great.”

“Hands Up is grateful to Ditchley Park, the Sacconi Quartet and Mark Padmore for helping us make our summer fundraiser so special. It will be a unique opportunity to hear this beautiful music in such an exclusive venue – all in you knowing make a significant difference in people’s lives.”
