A 300-strong choir has named Rainbow Trust Children's Charity as the beneficiary of its upcoming concert season.
London-based Barts Choir stages classical choral concerts with professional orchestras and soloists in London's top venues in aid of charity.
A charity spokesman said: "We are delighted that concerts in their 2012/13 season are in aid of Rainbow Trust.
"With approximately 300 singers, Barts is one of the UK's largest choirs. They were founded by a group of nurses at Barts Hospital in 1965, and retain links with Barts and the London Hospital Trust.
"Their choice of charity usually reflects this, being health or medical related."
The choir stages three major concerts a year with highlights including performances at the Royal Albert Hall, Cadogan Hall and the Royal Festival Hall.
The first concert in support of Rainbow Trust is on June 13 at 7.30pm at the Royal Festival Hall, and will celebrate the Queen's Diamond Jubilee.
