About

Britannia rules the stage in our tribute to three great English composers of the 20th century. Hold your head high during the noble sound of William Walton’s Crown Imperial, the unofficial theme song of the British royal family. Our own Concertmaster Jeff Thayer then brings to life the wild energy of Benjamin Britten’s Violin Concerto before we attempt to solve the riddle of Edward Elgar’s deeply personal musical portraits of his friends in the Enigma Variations.
