Crowning Glory - A Concert in Celebration of the Queen's Platinum Jubilee by MK Chorale
Published: 20 April 2022
At 7.30pm on Sunday 5th June 2022, MK Chorale (a not-for-profit Choral Society whose ethos is to make classical music accessible to everyone and simultaneously give back to the community), together with members of Polymnia, Musica Charity Choir and Oxford Pro Musica Singers, joins with MK's Alina Orchestra to perform an unforgettable evening of live music at Milton Keynes Theatre.
Enjoy the splendour of Handel’s coronation anthem Zadok the Priest, the emotion of Elgar’s Nimrod, and the rousing spirit of Pomp and Circumstance No 1.
Experience some of the magnificent music heard by the Queen as she was crowned: William Walton’s Coronation Te Deum, and his coronation marches Crown Imperial and Orb & Sceptre, together with Parry’s iconic I was Glad. Music by Bach, Butterworth, Dyson, Mozart and Stanford adds to the programme, and the concert culminates with Parry’s Jerusalem and a wonderful new arrangement of the National Anthem.
At the end of the concert there will be a retiring collection for Willen Hospice, the celebrated centre for the provision of end-of-life palliative care in Milton Keynes. Any profit from ticket sales will also go to Willen Hospice. Why not bring your Platinum Jubilee weekend celebrations to an exhilarating close with a glorious feast of music drawn from coronations through the ages! Tickets, from just £15 are available via Milton Keynes Theatre Box Office
