Billed as the ultimate in classical music shows, the Classical Spectacular presents the very best in classical music choreographed alongside lasers, lights and fireworks that breathe life into the various scenes and moods evoked by each glorious piece of music. The event celebrated its 25th anniversary last year and those looking for coach tours to this popular event are in for a wonderful evening of fine music and illumination.
Coach tours to the 2016 Classical Spectacular should appeal to everyone as the show celebrates the finest of classical music as the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra mixes old favourites such as 'Nessun Dorma', 'Rule Britannia', '1812 Overture' and 'Land Of Hope & Glory' with Verdi's 'Grand March' from Aida, Sousa 'Stars and Stripes Forever', Elgar's 'Nimrod' and culminating in a thunderous indoor firework display, complete with cannons and muskets, providing an explosive end to such a fantastic music event.
Who you see will vary depending on which day you attend, but this year's schedule sees performances from the Royal Choral Society (Thurs and Sat) and the London Philharmonic Choir (Fri and Sun).
