Henry V with Orpheus Sinfonia

St George’s Chapel will play host to an evening of rousing masterpieces as we see the return of Orpheus Sinfonia to the Festival stage.

This orchestra of exceptional young professionals, led by the dynamic artistic direction of their principal conductor Thomas Carroll, will bring to life Walton’s score for the 1943 Laurence Olivier film Henry V to commemorate 600 years since the Battle of Agincourt.

The evening also offers the perfect opportunity to showcase the Chapel’s organ which is celebrating its 50th birthday. Seemingly written for a building just like St George’s, Saint-Saёns’ magnificent Organ Symphony will certainly do just that!
