We never lose our fascination with royalty, from TV series like The Crown to keeping up with the latest news of royal babies and weddings!

In this concert prepare to lose yourself in the opulent and triumphant world of Kings and Queens, with a feast of processions, waltzes and marches, including the ever-popular Entrance of the Queen of Sheba by Handel. We also feature that most noble of instruments, the trombone, in a concerto written especially for our Principal Trombone Jason Redman.
