The Halle Orchestra at St Paul's Cathedral

Published: Friday 20th of June 2008

Music enthusiasts visiting St Paul's Cathedral on June 24th will be able to see a performance by Britain's longest-established classical ensemble - the Hallé Orchestra.

The orchestra will perform a concert of last works by a selection of German master-composers at the top London attraction.

Kicking off the concert will be Brahm's Four Serious Songs, followed by Wagner's Good Friday music from Parsifal which should complement the Cathedral's architecture perfectly.

The performance will also include The Last Four Songs - two of which were completed in Switzerland - composed by Richard Strauss to make the end of contribution to musical Romanticism.

Founded in 1858 by Sir Charles Hallé, the Hallé Orchestra's current musical director is Mark Elder CBE.

London Pass holders can receive free entry to St Paul's Cathedral and can also receive a 20 per cent discount in the Refectory Restaurant after 14:00 (BST) and a ten per cent discount on purchases over £10 in the Cathedral shop.
