The GSO proudly presents a Gala Concert to celebrate the Royal Wedding of Harry and Meghan - a glorious summer prom of rousing British songs and classical favourites including a specially composed Royal Wedding Fanfare. The highlight of the programme is Elgar's masterpiece The Enigma Variations. Elgar will be brought to life by West End star David Leonard who will weave through the music the composer’s own descriptions of the characters portrayed in the Variations. This festive programme includes works by Walton, Handel and Delius.
John Paul Ekins returns to perform Ireland’s Piano Concerto. Our sublime soprano Alexandra Stevenson sings Last Night of the Proms classics, Rule Britannia, Jerusalem and Land of Hope and Glory.
This concert is supported by the John Ireland Trust and The Delius Trust
