School Concert in Victoria Park
St. John of Jerusalem
Wednesday 19 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. John of Jerusalem church sits in the leafy surrounds of Victoria Park Village. It was designed by Edward Charles Hakewill and built in 1848 in what's called the Early English Gothic revival style. The church is situated a stone's throw from the wonderful Victoria Park.|
