Gala Concert hosted by Sir Michael Parkinson
Hazard Chase presents a Gala Concert in aid of Pancreatic Cancer UK at the prestigious Cadogan Hall, London.
“I’m delighted to be hosting this wonderful evening of music in aid of Pancreatic Cancer UK. This charity funds crucial research into the disease, while also offering support, advice and care for the patients and families affected. This concert will raise money to continue this work.” Sir Michael Parkinson.
The fantastic Guy Barker Jazz Orchestra will be joined by an exciting line-up of award-winning guest soloists: saxophonist Amy Dickson, pianist Benjamin Grosvenor, clarinettist Giacomo Smith and celebrated vocalist and Radio 2 broadcaster Clare Teal.
Repertoire will include the exhilarating Rhapsody in Blue by George Gershwin, a Piazzolla Medley for saxophone arranged by Guy Barker and Artie Shaw’s Clarinet Concerto, along with a selection of songs from the American Songbook like, Mr Paganini, Get Happy, I got it bad (and that ain’t good).
In addition to the brilliant music, there will also be a live auction with some fantastic lots.
It promises to be a wonderful evening.

The event is the brainchild of James Brown, Managing Director of Hazard Chase who lost his brother to pancreatic cancer ten years ago.
“Only 7% of people diagnosed with pancreatic cancer will survive for 5 years and only 1% will survive for 10 years. My brother survived for just 13 weeks. Although there has been a slight improvement in the figures in recent years, vastly more money is needed for research. Hazard Chase is proud to support the work of Pancreatic Cancer UK.” James Brown
The Gala Concert is a Hazard Chase event in support of Pancreatic Cancer UK. Hazard Chase will donate all net proceeds from the event to Pancreatic Cancer UK.
