Just in from the Hanover Band:
The Battle of Waterloo 1815 orchestral project
Six live performances including the first movement of Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony, and Marches and Fanfares from his ‘Wellington’s Victory’
Central to Caroline Brown’s vision is imparting the expertise of the Band’s current players to young musicians in schools and youth orchestras, introducing them to authentic early music, and enabling them to perform with this country’s leading exponents in this field.
250 young musicians, aged 9 to 18 years, from Hampshire, West Sussex County Youth Orchestras, Chichester University Chamber Orchestra, Brighton Youth Orchestra, Enfield Concert Orchestra, Crown Woods Academy Eltham, will play, in relays, in six performances with the full Hanover Band at St Pancras International.
Er, yes…. but that’s the wrong station. Even ABBA know that.
