Bernstein at 100: BBC Symphony Orchestra

Joana Carneiro is expecting her fourth child shortly and will not be able to conduct the BBC Symphony Orchestra concert on the 5th May. We are very grateful to Roderick Cox who will now be conducting this concert in her place. The programme remains unchanged.

We can also announce that Jessica Gillingwater will be the Mezzo Soprano soloist in Bernstein’s 1st Symphony.

Composer, conductor, showman: Leonard Bernstein was the ultimate musical all-rounder. To celebrate his 100th birthday, the BBC Symphony Orchestra and Roderick Cox play the music he loved – Gershwin’s swinging Rhapsody in Blue – and the music he wrote: a rare performance of his Bible-inspired first symphony.

The free minibus service between Audley End Station and Saffron Hall will be in operation for this concert. For more details click here
