The Philharmonia Orchestra will be giving a two-hour long performance featuring the London premiere of Indra, composed by distinguished onetime local resident Gustav Holst. The piece portrays Indra, the Hindu god of rain and storm, in a struggle with a dragon, Vrita, who causes a massive drought. Indra overcomes Vrita and the rain begins to fall. The orchestra will also be performing Ravi Shankar’s 'Symphony'– his first symphony conceived for a Western symphony orchestra. The performance will be followed by a special 10th birthday firework display – to round off what promises to be a wonderful day.
This concert is part of a free festival for all the family. For more information please visit London Mela's official website
