with BLAKE, the London Philharmonic Orchestra and the London Chorus
In Support of The Prince’s Trust – tickets from just £15
Friday 17th December 2010
Royal Festival Hall, Southbank Centre, London SE1
This is a truly wonderful and worthwhile event sponsored by Huawei Technologies , with at least £25,000 from proceeds going directly to The Prince’s Trust, the youth charity founded by HRH The Prince of Wales.
This will be the only opportunity to hear the world famous London Philharmonic Orchestra perform a programme at the Royal Festival Hall dedicated to Christmas classics. Enjoy the festive spirit with music from Prokofiev’s Troika from Lieutenant Kijé, excerpts from Tchaikovsky’s The Nutcracker, Vivaldi’s Winter from the Four Seasons and excerpts from Handel’s Messiah, finishing with Hallelujah Chorus sung by the 120 voices of the London Chorus.
Joining them after the break will be BLAKE, twice nominated Brit-Award winners, who continue to wow top audiences around the world with their stunning blend of close harmony vocals and uniquely British onstage humour. Along with a selection of classics like Jerusalem and Nessun Dorma, they will perform magnificent versions of White Christmas, Silent Night, Johnny Mathis’s When a Child is Born and Harold Darke’s In The Bleak Midwinter.
This is a very rare opportunity to see and hear Blake, accompanied by one of the worlds top orchestras and choirs, in a magical concert setting which can seat up to 3000 people.
