Our online box office is open for Celestial Grandeur on Tuesday 13 June which takes place back at our home venue of St Paul’s Covent Garden.
Music on the grand scale sets the tone for this terrific finale to the 2016/17 season. After the overture to Mozart‘s mischievous opera Le Nozze di Figaro we will hear Grieg‘s much-loved and majestic Piano Concerto, with Beethoven‘s magnificent Symphony no. 5 in the second half.
The concert will be conducted by our very own Michael Thrift, the Australian conductor and Firebird Conductor’s Circle member.
Since his LFO debut last year Michael has gone on to conduct Wagner’s Parsifal and looks forward to a busy 12 months conducing opera.
The soloist in Grieg’s flamboyant Piano Concerto is none other than London Firebird Orchestra’s Artistic Director, Marc Corbett-Weaver.
