Join us to hear John Williams’ Academy Award-winning score performed live by the 80+ players of the Philharmonia, as we watch the film on the Royal Festival Hall’s huge screen. We are really looking forward to it. It will be a fantastic night of music and film.

This clip of John Williams discussing the process of composing the score for ET is well worth a watch:

New MusicFest date:

MusicFests are informal concerts where students from any year group can perform pieces of their own choice to a friendly and supportive audience. We always have a huge range of music, from students’ very first public performance to students who are already hugely experienced musicians. We have all styles of music from classical to rock to musical theatre and students’ own compositions. There are solos, duets and groups.

Here is the video from last term’s MusicFest so you can get a flavour of what it’s like:
