Pull Out All The Stops: Neil Hannon's Guide To The Organ.
Saturday 22 March 2014, 7.30pm, Royal Festival Hall
The Divine Comedy frontman has created a series of vivid musical scenes for organ and choir which evoke the constriction, the mystery and magic, the boredom, and the hard-won freedoms of a childhood Sunday. The performance will be broadcast on BBC Radio 3, conducted by Rebecca Miller and features organist Tom Bell, Strings of the BBC Concert Orchestra and a Voicelab ensemble.
