The BBC Concert Orchestra is celebrating an anniversary of its own in 2012 with a 60th Anniversary North American tour. Known as “serious musicians with a sense of humor” the BBC Concert Orchestra’s rock solid technique allows them to cross musical boundaries, performing time-honored masterpieces with grace as well as the latest creations from resident composers including Radiohead’s Jonny Greenwood.
Principal Conductor Keith Lockhart, also of the Boston Symphony Orchestra, has selected a program featuring Elgar, Britten and Butterworth and paired it with a guest performance by the talented young cello soloist, Sophie Shao. Listen for a special musical introduction composed by Appleton’s own Maury Laws.
Whether you have been a fan of symphony music for decades or you have never attended a concert, the BBC Concert Orchestra promises an enlightening evening of music from across the pond.
