Platinum Jubilee Concert – A Celebration of Music at St George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle

June 3 @ 19:30 - 22:00

Due to high demand this Concert has now sold out. However in the event tickets are returned they will be put back up for sale on the ticket website  Platinum Jubilee Concert – A Celebration in Music (windsor.gov.uk) .

This special event celebrating The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee is a celebration in music of this remarkable and unique anniversary. The programme includes music from around the United Kingdom used on royal occasions, written during The Queen’s Reign, and premiered at this concert.

We have been able to draw together singers from several local choirs, and combine with the vibrant, dynamic, and inspiring Orpheus Sinfonia, with wonderful soloists, all under the superb direction of conductor Oliver Gooch.  Petroc Trelawny, radio and television presenter will guide us through the evening. 

We are delighted to announce that the Windsor Platinum Jubilee Concert will feature the UK premier of Cecilia McDowall’s work JUBILATE. Cecilia McDowall is one of our leading British composers and is commissioned to write by people all over the world.   She has won a reputation as a leading composer of choral music and her extensive catalogue contains many distinguished examples.  The emotional heft of this story has clearly inspired her to produce one of her most striking scores for the medium.

We do hope that you will enjoy the splendour of St George’s Chapel for Windsor’s musical tribute to Her Majesty.

 Concert commences at 7.30pm(performance 1 hour 50 minutes).   Admission is via King Henry VIII Gate
