John Sergeant to present the Jubilee Proms Concert at Lichfield Cathedral
This special event will celebrate the sixtieth anniversary of the Accession to the throne of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and will take place on Saturday 16 June, both in and outside Lichfield Cathedral. Lichfield Cathedral and Lichfield Garrick are proud to announce that this summer concert is being sponsored by the specialist insurance and financial services company Ecclesiastical (www.ecclesiastical.com).
The programme of music will include coronation anthems Zadok the Priest and I Was Glad, together with film footage plus live cameras relaying images of the concert throughout the Cathedral and excerpts from the Queen’s Coronation in Westminster Abbey in 1953. The concert will conclude with the traditional flag-waving ‘Last Night of the Proms’ favourites Rule Britannia, Nimrod, Sea Songs, Jerusalem, I Vow to Thee my Country, and Pomp & Circumstance March No. 1 – Land of Hope and Glory. The evening will feature the combined talents of the Cathedral’s resident Darwin Ensemble Chamber Orchestra together with the City Concert Orchestra (leaders Alex Laing and Robert Atchison).
This debut pairing will be led by four local conductors: husband and wife team, Ben and Cathy Lamb, Directors of Music at Lichfield Cathedral, Artistic & Executive Director of Lichfield Garrick Adrian Jackson and Cathedral Organist Martyn Rawles. The concert will also feature Soprano Elizabeth MacDonald, the Lichfield Cathedral Choir and the Lichfield Cathedral Chamber Choir. You can enjoy the great tradition of the patriotic British Proms concert either seated within the medieval building or soak up the summer atmosphere on the West Front lawn. Why not share a picnic and enjoy a glass of fizz with friends and family?
Music will be broadcast outside to all those celebrating and picnicking on the Cathedral’s West lawns. A Jubilee Proms Concert in Lichfield Cathedral – presented by John Sergeant
