A Cadogan Hall success

20 March 2016 – Another concert has come and gone and we are so grateful to everyone that came to Cadogan Hall yesterday to watch us perform Michael Tippett’s ‘A Child of Our Time’ as well as our very own MD, Ben Palmer‘s world premiere of ‘Flying in the Fire’!

WCS - Cadogan Hall concert 0316

In the beautiful setting of the Cadogan Hall, these stirring and emotional pieces were only enhanced by the magnificent Orchestra of St Paul’s playing of excerpts from John Williams’ ‘Schindler’s List’ score.

We worked very hard on the Tippett, in particular, and were proud to have brought it to London audiences but we were most excited to finally hear ‘Flying in the Fire’ with a full orchestra – and it did not disappoint!

We are now moving on to a rather more lighthearted programme of Copland, Lauridsen, Whitacre, Barber and Bernstein for our summer concert and hope to welcome you back in June!
