“This exceptional programme will include dazzling excerpts from Steven Spielberg’s iconic Jurassic Park, Schindler’s List and ET, along with other cinematic masterpieces such as Raging Bull, Skyfall and The Godfather, to name but a few.

“Generations of us have been inspired by movie soundtracks for decades, so this concert is guaranteed fun for the whole family!”

Molly added: “Founded in 1991 London Concertante has gained a reputation as one of the finest chamber ensembles in the UK. Its inspired and varied programming – with repertoire from the baroque to contemporary music, film scores to Viennese waltzes and Americana jazz to Argentine tango – has led to both public and critical acclaim throughout its 30-year history.

“The ensemble’s rich discography includes recordings on Chandos, Toccata Classics, Harmonia Mundi and ARC Music as well as their own label, with repertoire from Vivaldi’s Four Seasons to Astor Piazzolla and released in 2020, their Music from the Movies album.

“London Concertante’s popularity has taken them all over the UK, Europe and the USA, with regular appearances at venues such as St Martin-in-the-Fields, Cadogan Hall, and stunning cathedrals throughout the country. The ensemble always looks forward to performing in exciting new venues, and we are thrilled to be performing in Alexandra Palace Theatre and Chichester Cathedral for the first time during this tour.”
