Greenwich Music Time: Russell Watson + Royal Philharmonic Orchestra (RPO)
This August sees the launch of Greenwich Music Time, the first event of its kind ever to be hosted at the Old Royal Naval College (ORNC) at the heart of the Maritime Greenwich World Heritage Site. Taking place across this summer’s August Bank Holiday weekend, the event will feature a unique series of concerts which will transform this breathtaking riverside location into the ultimate open-air concert venue.
Running in association with the ORNC Foundation, Greenwich Music Time will present four nights of world class concerts featuring visionary electropop outfit Goldfrapp, who will perform songs from their illustrious back catalogue, as well as from 2013’s acclaimed Tales Of Us. A major coup for the festival, this will be the duo’s only London show of 2014.
Fresh from a sold-out UK tour, which included a date at The O2 Arena in London, The Australian Pink Floyd Show joins the bill for this summer’s inaugural Greenwich Music Time, performing on the opening night.
Multi-million-selling English tenor Russell Watson will headline on Friday 22nd backed by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and featuring some very special guests, and drawing the festival to a close on Saturday 23rd is local boy Jools Holland, who brings his Rhythm and Blues Orchestra to Greenwich for a set that will feature special guest singers Marc Almond and Melanie C.
Salford's answer to Pavarotti with a debut album 'The Voice' establishing him as a major international tenor. After starting in the pubs and working men's clubs of the north west of England, he's notched up unprecedented chart success on both sides of the Atlantic; has sung for the likes George W Bush and the Pope; and has performed more times at Wembley than Beckham and Owen.
To date, Russell has won four Classical BRIT Awards and has sold over eight million records worldwide. He is also the first artiste to hold simultaneous number ones in the USA and the UK.
