Starting out as The Insurance Orchestra, the London Phoenix Orchestra was founded in 1924 by Harold Rawlinson to provide members of the insurance industry with an opportunity to meet regularly and enjoy playing music together. This fundamental enthusiasm for music and a friendly ethos remains at the heart of the orchestra’s purpose to this day. Today players are drawn from all backgrounds, not just the insurance industry, and include music students.
Programme will include:
Korngold – Captain Blood Overture
Barry (arr. Raine) – Born Free
Williams – Schindler’s List
Rozsa – El Cid Overture
Steiner – Casablanca Suite
