To kick off 2020, Macmillan Chiswick is presenting Take Two, an evening of opera classics and jazz piano that will raise vital funds for local cancer support.

The concert will be held at the beautiful St Nicholas Church by the river in Chiswick on Thursday 23 January, and will showcase classic love songs and duets performed by four world-class musicians.

William Morgan is an ENO Harewood artist has performed extensively with English National Opera and made his solo debut at the Proms this year.

Lucy Hall is a talented soprano whose recent engagements also include ENO, The Royal Opera and Glyndebourne.

William and Lucy will be accompanied by accomplished classical pianist Chris Pocock, who will also play alongside jazz pianist, Mark Wallace. A teacher at Latymer Upper School, Mark has performed as a singer, conductor and organist in many of England’s great cathedrals and has recently recorded an album with Digby Fairweather and singer Wendy Nieper.

Tickets are £25 and include a welcome drink and canapés, served from 7pm. The concert will start at 7.30.

Tickets are selling fast, so if you would like to come, email liz.rigden@gmail.com as soon as possible.

We’ve always done that and won’t be changing, in fact we’d like to do more.

However, the readership that these stories generates is often below that needed to cover the cost of producing them. Our financial resources are limited and the local media environment is intensely competitive so there is a constraint on what we can do.

We are therefore asking our readers to consider offering financial support to these efforts. Any money given will help support community and public interest news and the expansion of our coverage in this area.

If neither of these amounts is suitable for you then contact info@neighbournet.com and we can set up an alternative. All payments are made through a secure web site.

One-off donations are also appreciated. Choose The Amount You Wish To Contribute.

If you do support us in this way we’d be interested to hear what kind of articles you would like to see more of on the site – send your suggestions to the editor.

For businesses we offer the chance to be a corporate sponsor of community content on the site. For £30 plus VAT per month you will be the designated sponsor of at least one article a month with your logo appearing if supplied. If there is a specific community group or initiative you’d like to support we can make sure your sponsorship is featured on related content for a one off payment of £50 plus VAT.
