Katherine Jenkins, a celebration of Her Majesty the Queen’s 90th birthday.

 

Join us to celebrate the 90th birthday of Her Majesty the Queen with a sensational programme of glorious music in the majestic setting of The Royal Albert Hall on Saturday 18 June at 7:30pm. It will be and evening filled with magnificently uplifting pieces that we all know and love. Headlining this joyous even is the superb Mezzo-soprano singer, Katherine Jenkins.

The popular classical-crossover singer has performed for many notable figures in the past, the first of which was when she sang at Westminster Cathedral honoring Pope John Paul II's silver jubilee in October 2003. Since then, Jenkins has developed wildly successful career with six number one albums on the UK Charts.

Jenkins will be joined by London Concert Orchestra and The Bach Choir who will be conducted by the Anthony Inglis. Together, they will be performing several celebratory pieces including the fantastic Coronation Scot, composed by Vivian Ellis.

Walton’s Crown Imperial, which was performed at Her Majesty the Queen’s Inauguration in 1953 will also be performed to commemorate her birthday.

Jenkins will be performing the classic Amazing Grace as well, which was famously written by English poet John Newton in 1779. This moving piece will be sure to inspire on this truly jubilant day.

Other songs from the night will include My Fair Lady’s exhilarating and exciting tune, I could have danced all night, the always wonderful Hallelujah Chorus and many others.
