The BBC Concert Orchestra is the UK’s most versatile orchestra. Their action-packed, eclectic schedule boasts concert programmes with music from Haydn to Tchaikovsky, film scores with Will Gregory (Goldfrapp) and the Pet Shop Boys to gigs alongside the Guillemots, Kasabian, Annie Lennox, KD Lang and Will Young.
The 56 players happily switch between recording shimmering scores for TV like Planet Earth, Coast, Walking with Dinosaurs, Kombat Opera and Sports Personality of the Year to building talent and audiences of the future in schools workshops in London and the South East. The Orchestra’s Composer-in-Residence is Jonny Greenwood (otherwise best-known for his work with Radiohead). His score for the film There will be Blood which was recorded with the BBC Concert Orchestra was nominated for two Golden Globes and a BAFTA.
