Shrewsbury School

Gala Concert in the Cadogan Hall, London SW1X 9DQ

Sunday 10 March 2019 at 18:00

Shrewsbury School’s Symphony and Wind Orchestras return to perform in the splendid setting of the prestigious Cadogan Hall, alongside musicians from the Old Salopian community and other invited guests.

This will be one of John Moore's final concerts as Director of Music at Shrewsbury School before he retires in July 2019, and it promises to be a most memorable occasion.

Cadogan Hall is one of the great concert venues in the UK, conveniently situated near Sloane Square. It is home to the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and hosts a full season of concerts, including the Proms, as well as having been a much-used BBC Radio 3 venue.

Tickets for the concert are £15 (or £5 for under-18s) and can be purchased via the Cadogan Hall website https://cadoganhall.com/whats-on/shrewsbury-school-2019/ or from their Box Office (tel. 020 7730 4500).

Programme:
Festive Overture - Dimitri Shostakovitch
Violin Concerto in G Minor - Max Bruch (Soloist: Matthew Poon)
