Concordia Foundation

The Concordia Foundation was founded by international singer and broadcaster Gillian Humphreys. We were delighted that Gillian was awarded an OBE in recognition of her charity work in the 2014 New Year’s Honours List. Gillian founded Concordia out of her real concern for building bridges of friendship and excellence through music and the arts.

About St Martin-in-the-Fields

St. Martin’s in the Fields: a triumph of divine inspiration
— The Telegraph

St Martin-in-the-Fields is a unique configuration of cultural, charitable and commercial initiatives rooted in the life of a vibrant Church of England congregation. Our vision is At the heart. On the edge. This declares that we see ourselves at the heart of London, through our location on Trafalgar Square, and of the nation, through our 500-year links with the royal family, and also of the church, through our national profile gained through nearly a century of broadcasting and our flagship role in social issues – but also appealing to the heart through our long tradition of choral and classical music and our reputation for compassion gained through a century of engagement with poverty and destitution.
