MacMillan Veni, Veni Emmanuel

MacMillan Veni, Veni Emmanuel

Usher Hall

John Storgårds Conductor
Colin Currie Percussion
Rosie Staniforth Cor Anglais

Vaughan Williams’ timeless Fantasia and Sibelius’ uplifting sixth symphony frame one of the SCO’s signature works. Back in 1992, they premiered MacMillan’s Veni, Veni Emmanuel at the BBC Proms, and it has since been played more than 400 times! Scottish percussionist Colin Currie has made the piece his own and hearing him is a thrilling experience. This will be a night of drama and riches. Before the concert SCO Chief Executive Roy McEwan will discuss how to programme an SCO Season, and commissioning new works.
