That was a truly amazing experience. The sound is unbelievable and even if watching a live orchestra isn’t your thing, you have to try it one time just to experience the atmosphere. So much passion goes into the music being played and the words being sung. It’s left me feeling quite humbled.

@cybette There was music by Delius, Elgar and Walton. Sheku Kanneh-Mason played Elgar’s “Cello Concerto” and Sir Bryn Terfel sang Walton’s “Belshazzar’s Feast” 👍🏻

@alan wow cool, a lovely selection of music by English composers 🎵 🎶

@alan
The Albert hall is a fantastic place,
Way back in the "olden days",
as my granddaughter calls it,
I performed on that stage in a show done by the Boys Brigade.

I wore a ballet tutu and sang (badly).
Scarred for life !

Fair to say, I wasnt the only boy in a dress that night,
But walking out onto that stage and just looking up was terrifying.

Three nights running.
Yet another of my dubious claims to fame.

@stannard I can imagine you were somewhat overwhelmed when looking up into the vastness of the hall!
