Devotee or novice, take a journey through classical music’s finest moments with infectious melodies, heart-wrenching harmonies, and breathtaking climaxes.

Be guided through a glittering line up of composers and their greatest work by the inimitable Guy Noble. Lift off with Strauss’ iconic Also Sprach Zarathustra, imagine the wind in your hair as you ride with Wagner’s Valkyries, and brace yourself for the cannons…

Pianist Konstantin Shamray delivers a suave account of Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue and soprano Desiree Frahn a simply heartbreaking O Mio Babbino Caro. This is your chance to hear some of the greatest music ever written, all on one stage.
