A celebration of two iconic collaborations that spanned over forty years from early Broadway musicals through to the 'golden age' classics of the 40s and 50s. Featuring show-stopping hits from Oklahoma!, Carousel, South Pacific, The Sound of Music and more.

John Wilson's recent performance at the Royal Albert Hall's BBC Proms 2012 received the following 5 star review:
