Queen Elizabeth Hall

Since 1952, the BBC Concert Orchestra has been the house orchestra for BBC Radio 2's Friday Night Is Music Night. It gives frequent broadcasts on BBC Radio 3, including regular performances at the BBC Proms, and has performed on such recent BBC soundtracks as Africa and The Paradise. This year, the orchestra returns to the Southbank Centre as an Artistic Partner Orchestra, for a series of concerts exploring pre- and post-war America as well as giving the UK premiere of Terry Riley's organ concerto.


This Event is at Queen Elizabeth Hall

 Southbank Centre SE1 8XX Belvedere Road, London

The Queen Elizabeth Hall is the second largest concert hall on Southbank Centre site, hosting chamber orchestras, quartets, choirs, dance performances and opera. As well as the main concert hall, the Queen Elizabeth Hall also contains two smaller venues, the Purcell Room and The Front Room at the QEH. Festival Village is located on the ground level of Queen Elizabeth Hall, underneath the foyer entrance and the Roof Garden on the top of the venue.
