Come with us on a whistle-stop tour of British music spanning the past 400 years.
The London Chamber Orchestra returns to the Cadogan Hall, bringing its trademark relaxed and welcoming concert format to music lovers and live-performance adventurers looking for something fresh and new.
Run, don’t walk, to get your tickets for this concert, presented and conducted by Christopher Warren-Green and featuring the superstar saxophonist Jess Gillam. The first saxophonist to reach the final of the prestigious BBC Young Musician of the Year, Jess has gone on to forge an exciting career as both musician and presenter.
In this concert, Jess performs The Celtic by Scotland-based composer Dave Heath, who was inspired by his time living in Fife. Sea Sketches by Welsh composer Grace Williams is an atmospheric and evocative piece that’ll have you smelling the sea air.
Music played by LCO’s intoxicating string section by English greats, Henry Purcell, Edward Elgar, Gerald Finzi and Ralph Vaughan Williams completes the programme.
