Join us for this symphonic venture through the natural world, through verdant forests and across the open ocean. Embrace the wild with a catchy Mancini tune and a spirited piece by Elgar. Follow the ocean through all moods with Grace Williams, from sailing tempestuous seas to enjoying the beautiful calm of a summer’s day at the beach. And enjoy orchestral adaptation of popular work by Björk with music that delves into emotions of the heart through the crystallisation of minerals and rocks. William Grant’s soft exploration of twilight and Vaughan William’s musical flight of the lark complete the programme. This adventurous evening with an ensemble of 14 BSO musicians is an escapade fit for all to join!
