Lights, camera, action! It can only be the John Wilson Orchestra. Prepare for an explosion of glamour, as the hills come alive in technicolour brilliance. Famed for their breath-taking verve, with some of the best wind and brass players on the planet, it’s no wonder the orchestra’s celebrated Hollywood-themed concerts at the Proms are broadcast to millions.

From Judy Garland to Julie Andrews, Doris Day to Barbara Streisand, the orchestra will perform songs from iconic stars of stage and screen with guest Kim Criswell. Hits include You Made Me Love You, Stormy Weather, and There’s No Business Like Show Business. Be swept up in the romance, sass, swaggering brass and swooning strings.

“Such is the energy, the joy, the overwhelming affection of this ensemble that they could have carried on all night and the crowd would still have wanted more.” – The Independent.

This event is included in our Library of Live scheme.
