Join the Philharmonia Orchestra and the Leicester-Shire Schools Music Service for a very special world-premiere performance of a newly commissioned large-scale musical work by composer John Webb with a libretto from Hazel Gould. The brand new piece celebrates Leicester’s fascinating cultural history, and is inspired by the discovery of King Richard III’s remains in the City. It brings together an orchestra and chorus of local young singers and instrumentalists, whose creative input has been woven into the piece. The Leicester-Shire Schools Symphony Orchestra, members of the Philharmonia, and Indian classical musicians join forces with a 100-strong choir to perform The Last Plantagenet; a magical tale of surprise and intrigue, with a familiar face returning to Leicester and observing the 2015 City with astonishment!

ADMISSION IS FREE, but tickets are required. To reserve your tickets please call the De Montfort Hall box office on 0116 233 3111
