Prom 22 - Classic MGM Film Musicals archivePart of the BBC Proms. John Wilson and his hand-picked Orchestra celebrate 75 years of MGM musicals with songs from unforgettable movie classics, including The Wizard of Oz, Meet Me in St Louis, The Harvey Girls, Brigadoon, High Society, The Band Wagon and Singin' in the Rain. Amazingly, although all the original orchestral parts were lost when the studio destroyed its music library to make way for a car park, Wilson has succeeded in reconstructing the scores by painstakingly transcribing each soundtrack by ear. He is joined by starry singers from the classical and musical theatre worlds, as well as by the elite Maida Vale Singers. There will be one interval. Approx. end time: 21:30
Performers Kim Criswell (vocalist), Sarah Fox (soprano), Thomas Allen (baritone), Curtis Stigers (vocalist).
