“Marvellous… Playing from memory, Aurora created an organic sense of community, dynamism and inspiration.” The New York Times
The first orchestra in the world to play whole symphonies from memory, Aurora debuts at London’s beloved Proms at St Jude’s with this unique and thrilling performance style.
Perhaps Mozart’s most iconic and recognisable work, the ‘Great’ G minor symphony unfolds with gripping drama. Performing without sheet music, Aurora invites you to experience this cherished piece through the rare and fresh lens of memorised performance. Completing the all-Mozart programme, pianist Cédric Tiberghien joins the orchestra for the composer’s dazzling Piano Concerto No. 13.
Proms at St Jude’s is an annual community festival of music and culture in North London that gives all surplus funds to charity. Three pounds in four go to Toynbee Hall to help disadvantaged young people and the rest goes to the North London Hospice, helping people with life-limiting illnesses. Proms was able to donate £50,000 to these good causes in 2017, and has raised over £800,000 since it was established in 1993.
