WHAT'S ON

Christmas Fantasia

WEDNESDAY 15TH DECEMBER 2021 | 19:30 | ST JOHN'S SMITH SQUARE

Allow the LCS to serenade you with a concert of joyful music this Christmas. With an uplifting selection of festive pieces from the very best British composers, there is music for everyone to enjoy! Beginning with Britten’s spell-binding Middle English poetry, A Ceremony of Carols, the concert continues with well-known audience carols and Christmas classics, alongside familiar Christmas tunes in new and enchanting arrangements. The programme culminates with Vaughan Williams’ majestic Fantasia on Christmas Carols, in celebration of the 150th anniversary of his birth next year.

Rise Heart

WEDNESDAY 8TH SEPTEMBER 2021 | 19:30 | CADOGAN HALL

This concert is made up of two celebrations: one to mark the release of our new disc of works for choir and orchestra by Richard Pantcheff; and one to mark the 150th anniversary of Ralph Vaughan Williams’ birth. Accordingly we will dive headfirst into Pantcheff’s wonderful new repertoire – and then cuddle up with some of Vaughan Williams’ best-loved classics, including his transcendent The Lark Ascending and his passionate settings of George Herbert poems in the Five Mystical Songs.
