Qatar Philharmonic Orchestra (QPO) will present a variety of popular music in a concert called Night of the Proms / British Festival on Friday 10 April 2015, 7:30pm at the Ceremonial Court in Education City.
Scottish conductor Bob Ross will return to Qatar to direct works from the United Kingdom and other parts of the world in the genres of Opera, Operetta, Broadway and film music. Soprano Felicitas Fuchs and Philharmonic cellist Kirill Bogatyrev will perform as soloists. The British Council is sponsoring the concert under the banner of its ‘British Festival’, a month-long celebration of activities promoting Britain in Qatar and cross-cultural relations.
Qatar Philharmonic Orchestra promotes and performs Western and Arabic music to inspire the children and adults of Qatar and the Arab world to create and enjoy music. An integral part of QPO’s work is to host new and established composers, soloists and conductors from the Arab world.
Night of the Proms will open with music by Emmerich Kálmán from The Gypsy Princess, continue through George Frideric Handel’s Arrival of the Queen of Sheba from Solomon, and offer three works by George Gershwin: Summertime, The Man I Love and I Got Rhythm. Other highlights include Hedwig’s Theme from Harry Potter by John Williams and music from West Side Story and Candide by Leonard Bernstein.
