Concert Series 2019-20

Join conductor Rebecca Miller and the Welcome Week Orchestra and Chorus for our opening musical extravaganza at Royal Holloway with a smorgasbord of orchestral and choral music of a transatlantic flavour. With Aaron Copland’s toe-tapping ballet Rodeo, music by Joseph Haydn and Margaret Brouwer, plus Bernstein’s ’Glitter and Be Gay’ from Candide featuring a 2019 Royal Holloway Concerto Competition Winner Emily Chapman, this is sure to kick-start our season in style, whilst all performed by our fresh, new students.

Joseph Haydn (1732-1809): Te Deum
Leonard Bernstein (1918-1990): ‘Glitter and Be Gay’ from Candide
