The Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra participated in recording a single, earlier today. The track will also feature The Farm, amongst many other noted celebs. Produced by Guy Chambers and conducted by Vasily Petrenko, the proceeds will go towards helping the families of the 96 dead victims pay their legal costs.

By the way, those of you who have been around as long as me, may know that world famous producer, Guy Chambers, is the son of former RLPO Principal Flute Colin Chambers.
