Royal Philharmonic Orchestra

An epic event for Canterbury Choral Society together again with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, following their triumphant performance of The Dream Of Gerontius in June 2018. Elgar himself conducted this work in Canterbury Cathedral, and it represents a great challenge for all performers with its scope and range of vision, ending with a roof-raising and unforgettable climax of telling splendour.

“This is the best of me” wrote Elgar on completion of The Dream Of Gerontius. That was before he had written The Apostles! Not to be missed; a rare occasion to hear this great work.
