Top musicians from London's prestigious Royal College of Music (RCM) will entertain crowds in Beckenham tomorrow.
In celebration of Benjamin Britten’s centenary, young players from the college’s Philharmonic Orchestra will present a programme of orchestral music at Langley Park Centre for the Performing Arts.
Their skills will be showcased in two works by RCM alumnus Britten – his thrilling Canadian Carnival and his well-known Young Person’s Guide to the Orchestra.
Britten was a key figure in British classical music before his death in 1976.
Also on the bill is Dvorák’s lively Scherzo Capriccioso and the orchestral suite from Kodály’s Hungarian folk opera Háry Jáno.
The concert starts at 7.30pm at the centre in South Eden Park Road. Tickets can be bought from the box office on 020 8591 4314, at rcm.ac.uk/boxoffice or at the door.
