Battersea Park In Concert announces bonanza of Classical, West End musicals, Soul & Jazz for its inaugural series
London’s most magical open-air concert series has arrived. Battersea Park In Concert is set to host three days of stellar music in Battersea Park with enchanting Classical, Soul and Jazz performances from Gabrielle, Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra, and The Ronnie Scott’s All Stars.
Kicking off the August bank-holiday weekend in style with two incredible performances is the internationally celebrated Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra. On Saturday 26 August get ready for a spectacular ‘Night at the Musicals’ programme. West End musicals lovers can immerse themselves in their favourite stage shows in this show-stopping experience, featuring a host of guest star vocalists and the world-famous orchestra conducted by Peter Balcombe.
Returning to the stage on Sunday 27 August, the Royal Philharmonic’s 60-piece concert orchestra will present ‘Proms in the Park’, a night of musical majesty with a special programme of masterpieces from composers including Tchaikovsky, Elgar and Puccini. For a striking finish, concert-goers can expect an impressive fireworks finale to end the night with a bang.
The final day of performances at Battersea Park welcome the finest soul and jazz talent the UK has to offer. Fans who missed out on Gabrielle’s sold out show at The Royal Albert Hall can catch her here. Gabrielle was recently handpicked by Grammy-award winning singer Adele as her opening act during her 2022 BST Hyde Park shows and this year celebrates 30 years of her breakthrough single Dreams.
Other performers include double MOBO award winning British saxophonist YolanDa Brown. Specialising in reggae, jazz and soul, YolanDa has previously collaborated with Kelly Jones from Stereophonics and Rick Astley.
Joining the line-up is The Ronnie Scott’s All Stars, the legendary venue’s very own band. Honouring the many celebrated artists who have stepped foot on stage at Ronnie’s, their energetic performance pays homage to the club’s rise from a basement bar where local musicians would jam to the internationally acclaimed establishment it is today.
More performers and programme information will be announced in the coming weeks.
