Queen’s to host Classical Extravaganza

A classical extravaganza is taking place later this month to mark the 175th anniversary of Queen’s College.

The independent school in Taunton’s Trull Road has been staging a year of celebrations and the concert on June 29 in the Queen’s Hall (7.30pm) is the latest.

It features the school’s professional Orchestra-in-Residence, the Southern Sinfonia, together with students, staff and Old Queenians (ex-pupils).

A special Concert Chorus is being formed to participate in the evening’s programme, which includes:

  • Handel – ‘Zadok The Priest’
  • Parry – ‘I Was Glad’
  • Mozart – Piano Concerto No 21 in C (featuring  OQ soloist, Weng Soon Tee)
  • Bizet – Carmen Suite No. 2
  • Elgar – Pomp and Circumstance March No. 1
  • Strauss – the Radetzky March

Tickets – £15 adults, £10 students – are available from bookings.queenscollege.org.uk or by calling 01823 340880.
