Docklands Sinfonia goes ‘out of this world’ with Star Wars and Planets
Next concert of the Docklands Sinfonia promises to be an ‘out of this world’ experience.
Their June 22 performance includes ‘space’ classics such as John Williams’ legendary Star Wars Suite and Gustav Host’s The Planets, performed in the down-to-earth classical setting of Hawksmoor’s St Anne’s Church at Limehouse.
The 100-strong orchestra perform with the acclaimed Skolia choir, winners of last year’s Manchester Amateur Choir competition.
The choir performs Patrick Hawes’ Quanta Qualia, made famous by New Zealand soprano Haley Westenra, and Howard Goodall’s Factum Est Silentium.
The evening also features a brief awards ceremony for winners of the Jubilee Arts and Poetry competition in which five schools in east London took part.
