Purcell Performs at QEH

Last night’s concert (Thursday 1st December) at the Southbank Centre’s Queen Elizabeth Hall was remarkable! Under the baton of guest conductor Otis Enokido-Lineham, Purcell’s Symphony Orchestra performed Love from ‘Under the Skin’ by alumna Mica Levi, followed by Beethoven’s Piano Concerto no. 4 with alumna Magdalene Ho as solo pianist. After the interval the orchestra returned for a rousing performance of Holst’s The Planets Suite which came to a triumphant close with an off-stage chorus from the Symphony Choir.

Our thanks to Otis Enokido-Lineham and Magdalene Ho for their exceptional performances, and huge congratulations to our sensational Symphony Orchestra and Choir. You blew us away! We were, and remain, incredibly proud.

For those who were unable to attend, the programme is below and a recording of the event will be available in the new year.
