7:30pm The Music of Eric Whitacre (includes one 25 minute interval)
The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra is thrilled to be joined by Grammy Award-winning American choral composer and conductor Eric Whitacre, who has been taking the classical music world by storm, for a resplendent evening of spine-tingling music.
This ethereal concert, featuring the choral talents of the City of London Choir, includes some of his greatest choral works, such as the groundbreaking Deep Field, which caused a sensation at the 2015 BBC Proms and for which the audience is invited to activate a special mobile phone app during the performance and add to the shimmering tranquillity of his music.
