Because of space restrictions on the stage due to the BBC Radio 3 recording, the programme order will now be:

Bernstein Overture to Candide
Gershwin Rhapsody in Blue
Bernstein Symphony No.1
Copland Appalachian Spring Suite
Stravinsky Firebird Suite (1919)

As previously announced, Joana Carneiro is expecting her fourth child shortly and will not be able to conduct this concert. We are very grateful to Roderick Cox who will be conducting this concert in her place.

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

To book a wheelchair space or if you have any access requirements please phone the Box Office or email us at info@saffronhall.com
