The evening will feature a fantastic array of international soloists, the Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra, and a whole host of classical favourites.

One of the world’s most popular living composers, Sir Karl Jenkins, will conduct highlights from The Armed Man, which was premiered at the very first Classic FM Live in April 2000.

The concert will also include favourite melodies from Tchaikovsky’s The Sleeping Beauty and Verdi’s opera Nabucco, and a surprise superstar violinist will perform The Lark Ascending by Ralph Vaughan Williams.

This very special night will mark 20 years of Classic FM Live at the Royal Albert Hall.
