Music lovers are invited to a Tchaikovsky Gala, VS Gala 2012 at the Barbican Hall, London, on 22 November 2012 at 7.30pm in aid of Victim Support.
The comedian Sue Perkins, world renowned tenor Christopher Ventris and others will star in an evening celebrating Tchaikovsky's best known works including excerpts from his Opera 'Eugene Onegin' which will be sung in English.
Ticket prices range from £20 to £75 and sponsorship packages are available. All the money raised from the night will go towards supporting victims and witnesses of crime.
Sue Perkins, who will be a guest conductor, said: "It's an honour to perform alongside some of today's leading musicians and singers at this Gala for Victim Support. This concert will showcase the best of Tchaikovsky's work, whilst raising much needed money to help victims of crime leave the scars of their ordeal behind them. I'd like to encourage all music fans to book tickets for what will be a fabulous night, supporting a truly worthy cause."
Jeff Gardner, Victim Support's Locality Director for London, said: "Everyone who attends this magical night of music will be helping us to support victims and witnesses of crime. Last year we gave vital emotional and practical support to 105,000 victims and witnesses of crime in London, helping them to find the strength to move on.
"We would like to thank all of the amazing performers and everyone else who is giving up their time and resources to make this happen."
