It was such a privilege to hold Elgar’s baton, and to think of the wonderful music he conducted in the city of Worcester” Charlotte added “I am really excited to be performing in Worcester Cathedral. I’m certain it will be a very special evening.
Beethoven’s ninth symphony is also known as “The Choral” and the audience on Saturday 5th May can expect a choir of around 100 voices from local choirs and choral societies. These voices coupled with the 60 strong orchestra will really raise the roof at Worcester Cathedral and make for an unforgettable experience for the audience, and the musicians!”
When asked about the performance Richard Jenkinson said:
There can be no better place to spread Beethoven’s anthem of joy for mankind than the sublime setting of Worcester Cathedral. This concert also celebrates Worcestershire’s favourite son, Edward Elgar, in the Cathedral that meant so much to him.
