The world famous Proms season continues at the Royal Albert Hall with a concert by Sir Mark Elder and the Aldeburgh World Orchestra. They will be performing Britten's "Sinfonia da Requiem", Mahler's "Symphony No. 10 – Adagio", Charlotte Bray's "At the speed of stillness", and Stravinsky's "The Rite of Spring".
Sir Mark Elder is the music director of Manchester’s famous Hallé Orchestra. The British conductor has also held important roles with the English National Opera (ENO), BBC Symphony Orchestra and City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra.
The terracota-coloured Royal Albert Hall is one of London’s favourite concert venues. Whilst it remains most famous for classical music and the annual Prom concerts, it also holds rock and pop concerts, sports events and award ceremonies.
