John Wilson Orchestra

Part of Snape Proms
With vocalists Matt Ford & Anna-Jane Casey
Who better to convey the genius of George Gershwin than the irrepressible all-star John Wilson Orchestra?
The songs are familiar friends – They Can’t Take That Away From Me, But Not For Me, Strike Up The Band, Shall We Dance – but heard in their original show-stopping sequences and sumptuous film orchestral arrangements they surprise, delight and entertain us anew. John Wilson and his dazzling orchestra are the world’s leading exponents of the music from the golden era of Hollywood, blending historical authenticity with sensational performances to blow the dust off some of the best-loved scores ever written for film and the Broadway stage.
