About the Event
Hilary Davan Wetton Conductor Marta Fontanals-Simmons Mezzo-soprano
Royal Philharmonic Orchestra
Embracing British music in all its rich and diverse range, the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra leads you on a journey through green and pleasant lands in a concert that celebrates some of the country’s finest music. Vaughan Williams’ The Lark Ascending, with its lyrical and soaring violin line, features alongside the blazing fanfares and noble themes of Coates' Dambusters March and Parry's Jerusalem.
Elgar’s ever-popular, and quintessentially English Pomp and Circumstance March No.4 provides a fantastic finish to this performance. This piece was a landmark not just for Elgar, but for British music.
