Many of us have been starved of the chance to hear live music over the last year and a half, so it comes as a welcome boost to see that the wonderful Philharmonia Orchestra has scheduled a concert of John Williams music this coming season, albeit in March 2022. Stars and Sorcery The concert is scheduled to take place at the Marlowe Theatre in Canterbury, Kent. This also augurs well for a London performance (the orchestra has not yet announced its London schedule for the second half of the season). Historic Canterbury can be reached in an hour or so on the high speed train from London St. Pancras and is also easy to get to by Eurostar from northern France to Ashford International, if travel restrictions have been lifted by then. Given the location, it would be great if they programmed a couple of selections from Thomas and the King - just imagine it, the age of Henry Plantagenet!
Many of the major orchestras in the UK announce their concerts for the 2019-20 season around this time, including the London Philharmonic Orchestra and the Philharmonia. I am excited to see that there will be a live to picture performance of William Walton's score for Henry V on 7th November this year. Frank Strobel will conduct the Philharmonia, one of London's finest orchestras. Henry V The film and score are both bona fide classics, so this could be really good. Once more unto the breach, dear friends, once more.
Hello all, Perhaps some of you are aware of this, but we wanted to formally post this concert's information: http://life.royalalberthall.com/2013/07/ridley-scotts-gladiator-to-be-presented-live-at-the-royal-albert-hall/ This one is quite a production with a 90 piece orchestra, 80 piece choir, duduk/zurna solos, and with great excitement we will be joined by Lisa Gerrard singing the vocal solos. Hope to see some of you there! http://gladiatorlive.com/
