The National Gilbert & Sullivan Festival Orchestra has been described as the world’s finest specialist G&S “band”. This afternoon from the stage of the Royal Hall they will play all 13 G&S overtures and more – music for every occasion. We are delighted to welcome James Hendry back to conduct this special event. Dr David Russell Hulme, Director of Music at Aberystwyth University is known for his research and publications on the music of Arthur Sullivan. He is a particular expert on the overtures and will host and introduce the programme.
