Bristol Concert Orchestra: Americano!

— St George's
Gershwin's American in Paris, Barber, Bernstein & Star Wars
price: See event details


Like an extra strong Americano, this concert is overflowing with some of the best music from across the pond:

Two offerings from Samuel Barber with his famous and poignant Adagio for Strings, and the lesser-known, but gloriously lush, rhapsody for voice and orchestra Knoxville: Summer of 1915 set to words of James Agee (to be sung by April Fredrick) mix with the sparkling vitality of Bernstein's Overture to Candide in the first half.

To follow, Gershwin's irrepressibly jazzy An American in Paris and - for an out of this world finish - the epic music from Star Wars penned by John Williams (far from the only music in tonight's to have found fame on the silver screen!).

Tickets £6-£15, children £1 are available online at www.bristolconcertorchestra.org.uk

or from St George's Bristol in person, online or by phone: 0845 40 24 001
