Royal Holloway in Concert with the London Mozart Players
St John's Smith Square, Smith Square, London SW1P 3HA
Royal Holloway, University of London, has a tradition of inspiring musical excellence spanning over 100 years. Founded as a ladies college, at a time when few universities admitted women, the campus community in Surrey is home to one of the world’s top university music departments.
The Choir of Royal Holloway is considered to be one of the UK’s finest mixed-voice collegiate choirs. The 24 choral scholars undertake a busy schedule under the supervision of Director of Choral Music, Rupert Gough.
The Royal Holloway Chamber Orchestra includes scholars from the College’s orchestral scholarship programme. They are conducted by Director of Orchestras, Rebecca Miller, and participate in a unique side-by-side performance scheme with the UK’s oldest chamber orchestra, The London Mozart Players.
Following their 2017 debut performance together at St John’s Smith Square, these ensembles unite with the London Mozart Players for a showcase including Beethoven’s masterpiece 5th Symphony and Vaughan Williams’ Serenade to Music.
Celebrating the centenary of the Representation of the People Act 1918, the programme includes the world premiere of a new commission from composer Joanna Marsh, reflecting on the 1913 Derby, where suffragette and Royal Holloway alumna Emily Wilding Davison famously collided with the King’s horse.
