  Premiere: I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud


Come and bask in the mystical beauty of the Northern Lights, performed in Strathmore's sumptuous acoustics  by the National Philharmonic Chorale along with the Montgomery College and Strathmore Children’s Choruses. Rachmaninoff’s eloquent Vespers opens followed by the amazing and energetic music of Norwegian composer Ola Gjeilo who will join us as our guest artist/pianist. Capping off this special evening is a world premiere by Alistair Coleman, NP’s own Young Composer in Residence. It’s a night not to be missed!
