Durham Festival of Arts: Land of Hope and Glory
Fri 2 Jun 2017 , 7:30 pm| £20
The musicians of Durham University join forces to open the university’s third Festival of the Arts with their annual gala concert in Durham Cathedral. This year’s concert theme is a celebration of British music, from Handel’s coronation anthem Zadok the Priest to music by the Beatles and Coldplay, with a bit of classic British comedy thrown in from DULOG’s Spamalot! team. The concert ends with a traditional “Last night of the Proms” finale, with audience participation and flag-waving.
Groups performing include the University Chamber Choir, Horn Society, Durham Dynamics, Classical Ensemble, Choral Society, Brass Band, DU Light Opera Group and Durham University Orchestral Society.
Tickets £20 front nave / £15 rear nave, concessions available. Book online at Durham University Music society via the link below. In previous years, this concert has sold out, so it is unlikely that there will be tickets on the door.
