The Sunflower Jam has confirmed the inclusion of Orion Orchestra: The Orchestra of Rising Stars for Celebrating Jon Lord At The Royal Albert Hall on April 4 2014.
The evening will include performances by the Orion Orchestra which will be conducted by Paul Mann, a close friend and musical partner of Jon Lord.
Paul and Jon’s last project together was the recording of Jon Lord’s Concerto for Group and Orchestra in 2011-2012 with the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra.
Paul will conduct the Orion Orchestra, formed in 2005 by Toby Purser. Since then, the Orchestra has become recognised as one of the most dynamic orchestras for the cream of London’s music college students and graduates, with a repertoire stretching from the music of Azerbaijan to a performing and recording with Rick Wakeman (who of course, will also be performing at the concert for Jon).
Tickets will be available shortly.
