Music truly was out of this world when ten singers from the University performed alongside the Philharmonia Orchestra and Philharmonia Voices, in a sell-out performance of Holst’s ‘The Planets’ suite’ under the baton of John Wilson at the Marlowe Theatre.

Ten members of various University choirs, including several University Music Scholars, headed down the hill during the afternoon of Wednesday 8 November to rehearse with Aidan Oliver, founding director of Philharmonia Voices, before returning in the evening to lend their voices to the ethereal final movement which brings Holst’s famed orchestral work to a celestial conclusion.

Director of Music, Sue Wanless, said: ‘It was such a privilege to be part of this concert and to see from ‘back-stage’ the extraordinary expertise and detail that these distinguished musicians bring to create the performance on the night.’

Congratulations to the ladies on their involvement in a terrific concert, and our thanks to the Philharmonia musicians for providing such an unearthly experience for our students.
