Thursday May 16th, 8pm

John Wilson - conductor

Having shaken the Royal Albert Hall's rafters at the 2012 BBC Proms, star conductor John Wilson now brings The Broadway Sound to Dublin.
With Wilson's baton pointing at the RTÉ Concert Orchestra and with a hand-picked cast of leading star vocalists, he'll be paying tribute to composers and arrangers responsible for that delectable Broadway Sound - among them Cole Porter, Irving Berlin, Richard Rodgers and Frank Loesser.
