This is a special year for the English Schools’ Orchestra as it returns to Cadogan Hall for its 20th anniversary concert. This also coincides with the centenary of the Performing Rights Society for Music, one of the ESO’s main sponsors. As a joint celebration PRS for Music have funded a brand new work from renowned composer Edward Gregson which is given its world premiere.

The programme commemorates the start of First World War, another centenary, and includes English music written in and around this time. Elgar’s epic First Symphony is the main work and the orchestra is also joined by Magnus Johnston for Vaughan Williams’ ever popular The Lark Ascending. Butterworth’s haunting A Shropshire Lad completes the programme.
