A Salute to the Big Bands

And much more.......

'Tchaikovsky meets the Beatles' is the best introduction to this delightful concert by St Joseph’s High School Symphony Orchestra and Band. These 14 to 18-year-old students have won praise throughout the mid-western USA, and produce a sound that would credit many professional orchestras.

Grieg’s Peer Gynt suite and Gershwin’s Summertime are instantly recognisable, and Tchaikovsky’s Serenade for Strings never fails to bring a tear to the eye.

Combine these with some jazz, some swing and some of the best-known tunes from The Beatles, and you have the recipe for a perfect lunch-time interlude, in which Britain and the New World come together in an atmosphere of relaxation and easy listening in the glorious surroundings of Southwark Cathedral.
