Pupils, staff, parents and friends of the School are invited to join the Music Department on a trip to the Royal Festival Hall in London to see the world-class Philharmonia Orchestra perform an exciting programme. The first half will showcase Mozart’s dramatic side with the thrilling overture to The Marriage of Figaro followed by his elegant Piano Concerto No.21 performed by Elisso Virsaladze.
The second half of the concert will feature Rimsky-Korsakov’s powerful Scheherazade, telling the story of a battle of wills between Scheherazade and her stubborn husband, the Sultan, who is convinced of womankind’s evil ways and intends to slay each of his wives after their marriage. The eponymous heroine manages to postpone her murder by telling the Sultan wild and magical stories. This well-known, exhilarating work spins a tale that is perfectly suited for the variety of colour Rimsky-Korsakov draws from the orchestra.
Tickets for pupils, staff, parents and friends of the School are £17.50 including travel. Places for this event are limited and booking closes on Friday 15 September.
