On Saturday 9 October 2021 in the London Borough of Brent the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra performed a relaxed concert in Brent Civic Centre's The Drum.
Khadra Mohamed joined the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra in July 2021 as the Production Assistant Intern, supported by the Mo Siewcharran Fund.
Khadra was a key member of the team working on Wemba's Dream, a brand new project in partnership with Wembley Park. Wemba's Dream saw the Orchestra collaborate with many Brent-based creatives over several months, which culminated in a day-long performance experience at Wembley Park on Saturday 11 September 2021.
With the project finally premiered, Khadra shares her thoughts on her experience with the RPO and what the internship has meant to her.
Thank you for your interest in and support of our 75th Anniversary concert, RPO at 75, at the Royal Albert Hall on 21 September 2021. As an extra gift amidst our birthday celebrations, we wanted to share with you a playlist including music beyond the concert's repertoire, delving deeper into the music of the composers featured on the evening: Delius, Elgar and Walton.
On Wednesday 4 August 2021, the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra stepped back onto the stage of the Royal Albert Hall in front of a live audience for the first time in almost eight months.
