The John Wilson Orchestra UK Tour

John Wilson Orchestra UK Tour

In November 2016 The John Wilson Orchestra will undertake a major UK tour with their brand new show Music From The Movies. These concerts will celebrate Oscar-winning songs and movie scores from the Golden Era of Hollywood. Tickets are now on sale.

2016 has been a vintage year for the perennially popular John Wilson Orchestra. The release of their first live album, Gershwin in Hollywood: Live At The Royal Albert Hall, a coveted win at the Echo Klassik awards in Germany for the Cole Porter In Hollywood recording, and an annual return to the BBC Proms which sold out in record time.

In September 2016 the John Wilson Orchestra made its debut at the Musikfest Berlin in a concert celebrating the MGM film musicals at Berlin’s iconic Philharmonie concert hall. The orchestra was invited to the festival on the recommendation of Sir Simon Rattle who came and played timpani with the John Wilson Orchestra for the concert’s encore. The concert was broadcast by the Berlin Philharmoniker’s Digital Concert Hall and has been enjoyed by new fans all over the world.

The John Wilson Orchestra is a handpicked ensemble of virtuoso players from orchestras across Europe. The fabulous Louise Dearman (Evita and Wicked and legendary Broadway diva Kim Criswell will be joining the orchestra on tour.
