A chance to revel in the breathtaking versatility of the ‘king of instruments’! The art of performing classical favourites on the organ has a long and distinguished history and in this Bank Holiday matinee Prom, Richard Hills brings together the traditions of the great theatre organist-entertainers and the Town Hall recitalists – with the accent on melody and virtuosity.
Programme to include:
Coates: March 'Sound and Vision'
Sullivan: Mikado Memories (arr R Hills)
Ireland: Miniature Suite - 'Villanella'
Mayerl: Four Aces Suite - 'Ace of Hearts'
German: Three Dances from Nell Gywn
Waller: 'A Handful of Keys'
(Note: at 2.30pm in the Royal College of Music there is a Proms Plus Sing event. Join Mary King for a sing through some great tunes from musicals and movies to get you in the toe-tapping mood for this afternoon’s Light Organ Prom. You are able to sign up for this event here from Monday 10 June 2013.)
