The bunting is up! After 18 months of performing under Covid restrictions, Crystal Palace’s resident orchestra, the London Mozart Players, is back with a bang! The orchestra kicks off its exciting six-concert SE19 season with a concert packed with the best-loved works in the classical repertoire. In the cherished tradition of the ‘Last Night of the Proms’, St John’s, Upper Norwood, will resound with all your orchestral favourites: Elgar’s ‘Nimrod’ and ‘Pomp and Circumstance March’, Holst’s ‘Jupiter’, Walton’s ‘Crown Imperial’, Vaughan Williams’ ‘Greensleeves’ and much, much more.
Stunning coloratura soprano Christina Johnston will entertain with beloved songs from her opera and theatre repertoire, including Mozart’s incredible ‘Queen of the Night’ aria and musical theatre classic ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone’. This magical musical extravaganza has something for everyone.
We have all missed the sheer joy of live music so much. Bring your flags, your voices and your friends! SE19’s very own classical ‘Prom’ is perfect for all the family!
