The BBC Concert Orchestra is coming to Ilford to perform a family-friendly show.
Led by principal conductor Bramwell Tovey, audiences can spend an afternoon listening to classical and well-known songs at Redbridge Town Hall, High Road, Ilford.
The performance will be recorded on Sunday, June, 24 and broadcast at a later date on BBC Radio 3.
A BBC spokesman said Benjamin Britten’s The Young Person’s Guide to the Orchestra will be played which “is a great introduction to the magic of classical music”.
Instantly recognisable TV theme tunes will also be performed such as Saint-Saëns’ Danse macabre from the crime solving show Jonathan Creek.”
As a tribute to the concert venue, Mr Tovey will also conduct a piece composed by former Redbridge Youth Orchestra member Roderick Elms called Cygncopations.
Doors open at 2.45pm and the concert starts at 4pm.
