University Choir and Philharmonia and Zhejiang Conservatory of Music

In a special gala concert, the University of Nottingham Philharmonia and Choir join with guest musicians from Zhejiang Conservatory of Music in China.

  • Jonathan Tilbrook: Conductor
  • Reisha Adams: Soprano
  • John Findon: Tenor
  • Thomas Humphreys: Baritone

The concert opens with Li Huanzhi’s Spring Festival Overture often performed at Chinese New Year festivities.

It follows with Rachmaninov’s The Bells. Based on a Russian poem adapted from Edgar Allan Poe’s famous poem of the same name, the piece evokes bells marking the passage of life.

Finally, there will be a performance of Holst’s The Planets, which ascribes an astrological character to each of the known planets conveying a metaphorical progression of life from the physical (‘bringer of war’, ‘bringer of jollity’) to the mystical.

7:30-9:30pm, Saturday 24 November 2018. Albert Hall, Nottingham.

£13 (£13 concessions, £6 students).

Book tickets at Lakeside Arts.
