In light of the coronavirus outbreak and current restrictions, this performance has been cancelled.

With full support from the Orchestra, we are doing our utmost to support the national effort in reducing the spread of coronavirus, and the health and well-being of all our visitors, staff members, and visiting performers is our number one priority.

Bookers will be refunded the full cost of tickets and any drinks vouchers to the card that they paid with. If you would prefer a Cadogan Hall credit voucher, please contact the Box Office on 020 7730 4500 (Monday to Friday 10am – 4pm) or via our online form as soon as possible.

Brilliance and majesty are in abundance in a glorious programme that shines a spotlight on the brass and percussion sections of the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.

Copland’s ever-popular Fanfare for the Common Man provides a blazing start to this lunchtime concert, followed in true regal style with Handel’s jubilant Music for the Royal Fireworks, commissioned by King George II to accompany a firework display on the River Thames.

The concert concludes with a special arrangement of Mussorgsky’s colourful Pictures at an Exhibition, a musical gallery tour concluding with the grand Great Gate of Kiev.

This is a socially distanced performance.

Duration: approx. 75 minutes (no interval)
