From The Hollywood Reporter:

James Bond film composer David Arnold today announced details of his second annual Concert for Care, a charity event for Care International at the Royal Albert Hall on Oct. 18 that will feature one of the biggest ever gatherings of top movie composers.

The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra will play selections of film scores and songs introduced by a dozen men and women who have written some of the most popular film music of recent years.

Arnold, an ambassador for Care International currently working on the music for the upcoming “The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader,” staged the first Concert for Care at London’s O2 Academy Brixton in 2009 with a line up of pop and rock stars.

Having witnessed the work Care does for the under-privileged around the world, Arnold says he was able to attract top people with more big names to be announced.

Arnold promises, “a unique evening with wonderful music as we present some of the greatest film music and movie songs written.”

Tickets for the concert and for the screening go on sale on Aug. 6, with news of additional star names to be updated at www.concertforcare.com.

Other composers in attendance thus far are Craig Armstrong, Anne Dudley, John Powell, Patrick Doyle, Dario Marianelli, Rachel Portman, George Fenton, John Ottman, Jimmy Carr, and last but not least, Harry Gregson-Williams (The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe; Prince Caspian).
