EMG Symphony Orchestra
Saturday April 28 in Exeter Cathedral, at 7.30pm
On Saturday 28 April join EMG Symphony Orchestra and Music Director Leo Geyer at Exeter Cathedral for a sparkling evening of music to celebrate the 150th anniversary of Exeter’s Royal Albert Memorial Museum.
The concert features a programme inspired by the museum and its collections.
The museum’s animal collections are brought to life with excerpts from Saint-Saens’ Carnival of the Animals, reimagined for full symphony orchestra by Leo Geyer, and Vaughan Williams’ The Wasps Overture.
Take a tour through the museum’s art galleries with Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition, and step back in time with Weber’s Der Freischutz Overture, an arrangement of which featured in the concert which took place to celebrate the opening of the museum in 1868.
The programme is completed with Silvestri’s music from Night at the Museum. This promises to be an evening not to be missed!
