School Concert in St. John's Wood
St. Mark's Church
Friday 7 June 10.20am
Bach to School's concerts in 2019 celebrate the 200th birthday of Queen Victoria. As well as being an iconic British monarch, political powerhouse, accomplished musician and mum of nine, Victoria was a trailblazer, early tech adopter and culture vulture. Step into Victoria's dainty shoes and hear the world as she did through our soundtrack to the Victorian era. This special series will take you inside the palace walls with music from the Queen's favourites, Mendelssohn and Strauss, into the Savoy Theatre of Gilbert and Sullivan fame, and on to the cobbled streets with songs from the Victorian Music Halls.|
Further details of the programme will be announced soon!
|St. Mark's Church was consecrated in 1847 and it was here that the iconic story of Alice in Wonderland was born when the Reverend Charles Dodgson (alias Lewis Carroll) was introduced to Alice Liddell who inspired the enchanting character known and loved to this day.|
