London Tour 2012 Concerts and Program


YOSA London Tour Orchestra Concerts

St. George’s Hall
Thursday, June 21, 8:00 p.m.

Built between 1842 and 1854, this hall has served as both a law court and venues for art and music festivals. It is noted as hosting Charles Dickens’ world premiere reading of The Christmas Carol as well as famous Victorian era murder trials. The Great Hall has one of the largest barrel vaulted ceilings in the country.

The Theatre at the Gate Arts Centre
Saturday, June 23, 7:30 p.m.

The Gate is housed in a 100-year-old Grade II listed building, formally the Plasnewydd Presbyterian Church. The Gate Centre was purchased in 2000 and underwent a four-year redevelopment; it opened its doors in September 2004 as a modern, multi-functional arts center with its architectural integrity completely preserved.

Southwark Cathedral
Wednesday, June 27, 4:00 p.m.

A unique historic setting, the Cathedral is London’s oldest Gothic church building. The majority of the present building was constructed between 1220 to 1420, although the nave is a nineteenth-century reconstruction in a thirteenth century style. Famous people from history who have visited the cathedral include the early English poet John Gower, Elizabethan playwright William Shakespeare, US university benefactor John Harvard, and more recently former Archbishop of Cape Town, Dr. Desmond Tutu, and former South African President Nelson Mandela.
