Following their extraordinary debut at the Proms last year, John Wilson and his hand picked orchestra return to the Royal Albert Hall to give a programme of Broadway hits penned by the great creative partnership of Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein. Excerpts from Oklahoma!, Carousel, The King and I and The Sound of Music are just some of the movie orchestrations recreated by John Wilson and performed by his orchestra, with soloists Kim Criswell, Anna Jane Casey, Julian Ovenden and Rod Gilfry. The concert is introduced by Katie Derham.
