Keith Lockhart, Principal Conductor

Charlie Albright, Piano Soloist

One of the United Kingdom’s most versatile ensembles, the BBC Concert Orchestra performs regularly at Queen Elizabeth Hall, London, and Watford Colosseum. The Orchestra was proud to perform at The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Concert in 2012. Principal Conductor Keith Lockhart works alongside Principal Guest Conductor Johannes Wildner and Conductor Laureate Barry Wordsworth. Lockhart has been Conductor of the Boston Pops for 18 seasons and Wildner brings over a decade’s experience with the Vienna Philharmonic. Arranger and jazz trumpeter Guy Barker has recently been appointed as the orchestra’s Associate Composer. The Orchestra is also dedicated to working with schools, colleges and local communities, and since 1952 the Orchestra has been the house orchestra for BBC Radio 2’s “Friday Night is Music Night.”
