10 Charles Johnston. MOONLIGHT SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA RETURNS TO LONDON The Moonlight Symphony Orchestra recently returned from their European tour in Vienna with performances made in two of the world’s most famous venues – the Wiener Konzerthaus and the Muth Theather (the home of the Vienna Boys Choir). Now back in London, they will perform at St John’s Smith Square on 22 June at 19.30. W.A Mozart's Clarinet Concerto in A K622 was one of the final completed works written by Mozart two months before he died. The concerto is notable for its delicate interplay between soloist and Orchestra. The soloist for this performance is Jorge Ripoll, a Spanish Clarinettist who is currently completing his Master’s degree at the world’s second-best Music conservatoire, the Royal College of Music. G Verdi La Traviata, the fallen woman, is an opera of three acts. The main artist in this performance is Violeta and this character speaks to our universal nature. Among the soloists is British baritone, Charles Johnston, who leads the two young soloists for this concert. With a repertoire ranging from Wagner to Britten, his career highlights include performances for English National Opera, Gorgio Germont & Marquis d’Obigny La Traviata, Dr Kolenaty The Makropulos Case, Nikitich Boris Godunov, The Cardinal The Duchess of Malfi, 1st SS Officer The Passenger, and the Guide Death in Venice (the latter bringing débuts at La Scala, Milan; La Monnaie; De Nederlandse Opera; and the Concertgebouw, Amsterdam). During this performance, the audience will have the opportunity to travel back to the 19th century and experience an intimate romantic atmosphere in one of the best-loved and most frequently performed opera plays. The Moonlight Symphony Orchestra was founded in December 2015 by Artistic Director Isolda Da Costa Soares. The orchestra was created to support and mentor young musicians and to help them develop their skills to a professional level. The Orchestra is comprised of many musicians who have graduated from some of Europe’s leading conservatories including the Royal College of Music, Royal Academy of Music, Guildhall School of Music & Drama in the UK, the Conservatorium van Amsterdam and the Music and Arts University of the City of Vienna and The University of Music and Performing Arts Vienna. Further details are available from www.moonlightsymphonyorchestra.com The cast of Allelujah! with Alan Bennett and Arlene Phillips. WORLD PREMIERE OF ALAN BENNETT’S ALLELUJAH! Rehearsals began this week for the world premiere of Nicholas Hytner’s production of Alan Bennett’s Allelujah! at the Bridge Theatre. Designed by Bob Crowley with choreography Arlene Phillips, lighting by Natasha Chivers and music by George Fenton, Allelujah! runs from 11 July to 28 September, with opening night on 18 July. The Beth, an old fashioned cradle-tograve hospital serving a town on the edge of the Pennines, is threatened with closure as part of an NHS efficiency drive. Meanwhile, a documentary crew eager to capture its fight for survival follows the daily struggle to find beds on the Dusty Springfield Geriatric Ward, and the triumphs of the old people’s choir (newest member: the Pudsey Nightingale). Allelujah! will be the tenth collaboration between Bennett and Hytner. They first worked together on Bennett’s adaptation of The Wind in the Willows for the National Theatre in 1990. Then followed The Madness of King George III, The Lady in the Van and The History Boys, all of which were also seen on film, The Habit of Art, People and the double bill Untold Stories.

Roddy Williams. RAF CENTENARY CONCERT AT THE BARBICAN CENTRE A concert to celebrate the centenary of the RAF is to be given on Monday 11 June at London’s Barbican centre by London Concert Choir. They will be joined by Canticum chamber choir, a specially recruited children’s choir, Counterpoint strings and the Central Band of the Royal Air Force, under the direction of Mark Forkgen and Wing Commander Piers Morrell, for what promises to be a highly memorable evening. After an opening fanfare, the concert begins with two magnificent Coronation anthems, Parry’s I was glad and Walton’s Te Deum, accompanied by the RAF Band and organ, and Britten’s engaging Simple Symphony for strings. Next comes a selection of stirring music from the Band, including the March from Things to Come by Arthur Bliss, Ladies in Lavender by Nigel Hess and Into the Skies by Phillip Lawrence, which has been specially written for the centenary. These are followed by the world premiere of another special commission: Per Ardua ad Astra - Through Adversity to the Stars (the RAF motto), a major choral work by the well-known British baritone and composer Roderick Williams. The new work sets a wide range of aviation poetry reflecting significant episodes in the history of the RAF from its foundation in April 1918 to the present. The movements will be linked by poems read by the BBC Newsreader Sophie Raworth and the actor Martin Shaw, and the Hall will resonate to the sounds of iconic aircraft from the history of the Service. Words and music will movingly combine to depict the joy and exhilaration of flying and the courage of the aircrews. Proceeds from the concert will be donated to the RAF100 Appeal – a joint venture between the Royal Air Force and four major RAF charities which are helping to support serving personnel and veterans as well as enhancing training facilities for young people. The nearest underground station is Barbican. Tickets at £12 to £35 are available from 020 7638 8891 or online at www.barbican.org.uk. THE RIDDLERS IN CONCERT AT GRESHAM CENTRE The Riddlers Avon Old Farms School, from Connecticut, USA, will give a lunchtime concert on Friday 8 June (12.15) at the Gresham Centre, St Anne and St Agnes Church, under the direction of Sarah Paquet. The event is open to the public and free of charge. 11 t h i s i s l o n d o n m a g a z i n e • t h i s i s l o n d o n o n l i n e
