Classical music is an art best appreciated live; that’s how it was intended to be heard, and nothing can evoke emotion quite like seeing an orchestra tackle the greatest musical masterpieces in person.
If you are getting goosebumps just thinking about this, then the Philharmonic Chamber Orchestra of London’s upcoming March 3rd show at the Cadogan Hall is the perfect event for you.
Focussing solely on classical British composers, the concert will provide a snapshot of the nation’s rich history in this genre.
The performance will include Vaughan Williams’ Five Variants of Dives and Lazarus, Fantasia on Greensleeves and Flos Campi, Finzi’s Requiem da Camera, and Elgar’s Serenade for Strings.
As an added incentive, the arrangements of Flos Campi and Requiem da Camera will feature the London Chorus and Sarah-Jane Bradley. These two pieces are rarely performed live and so seeing them in this setting will be a truly unique experience.
The other key players involved in this show will be Nicholas Merryweather on baritone, Ronald Corp OBE as choral music director and conductor Christopher Petrie.
Tickets are available for £15, £22, £29 and £35 and there are still plenty left, but get them quick! The show will commence at 7.30pm but it is recommended that you get there at least half an hour in advance.
To get to Cadogan Hall, the simplest route involves taking either the Circle or District line to Sloane Square Underground Station. From here, the venue is a two-minute walk away. You will pass the Sloane Square park on your left at which point you need to cross the A3217 and continue on up Sedding Street. Once you reach the end of the road, turn left on Sloane Terrace and the destination is on your left.
After the show, why not head into Knightsbridge for a meal and drinks? Our Shaftesbury Hotels are located close by, so you don’t have to worry about getting home!
