SWEET CHARITY is a comical but tender look at the adventures and misadventures in the ways of love encountered by New York dance hall hostess Charity Hope Valentine. Dreaming of old-fashioned romance, Charity is always falling for the wrong man and gives her heart to one undeserving man after another.

Denise Van Outen stars as Charity – singing, dancing, laughing and crying her way through this all-time classic musical comedy, alongside a host of other wonderful characters including her cynical girlfriends at the dance hall (Kerry Ellis and Kimberley Walsh), claustrophobic tax accountant suitor Oscar (Michael Xavier) and the phony evangelist Big Daddy. Through trials and tribulations, Sweet Charity continues searching for love, ever hopeful.

Featuring a fabulous score, including the classic songs Big Spender, There’s Gotta Be Something Better Than This, Rhythm Of Life, If My Friends Could See Me Now, I’m A Brass Band, Baby, Dream Your Dream, performed by the Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra, dancing and chorus from Arts Ed Ensemble, Cadogan Hall’s summer production 2015 will be the best one yet!

Denise Van Outen has played Roxie Hart (Chicago) on both West End and Broadway stages and Paulette in Legally Blonde (Savoy Theatre). Last year Denise wrote and starred in her widely acclaimed musical show Some Girl I Used to Know.

Michael Xavier is a two-time Laurence Olivier Award nominated English actor and singer (Into the Woods, Love Story). In February 2015, Michael joined the cast of Stephen Sondheim’s award-winning musical Assassins.

Kimberley Walsh is widely recognised as one fifth of Girls Aloud. Following the band’s split in 2013, Kimberley made her West End debut in 2012 as Princess Fiona in Shrek the Musical.

Kerry Ellis is best known for her work in musical theatre and has played lead roles in West End musicals including Les Misérables, Oliver and Wicked, winning a Whatsonstage Award in 2015 for her role as Elphaba. In February 2015, Ellis replaced Nicole Scherzinger in the role of Grizabella in Cats at the London Palladium.

Programme:
Beethoven: Symphony No. 1
Saint-Saëns: Cello Concerto No. 1
Tchaikovsky: Symphony No. 6 (Pathétique)

Alexander Dmitriev, conductor
Natalie Clein, cello

BRIT Award-winning cellist Natalie Clein, described by The Times as a ‘mesmerising’ cellist who ‘plays everything with passion’, guarantees an unforgettable performance of Saint-Saëns Cello Concerto No. 1, considered to be the greatest of all cello concertos.

Formed in 1931 and initially called the Leningrad Radio Orchestra, the St Petersburg Symphony Orchestra became revolutionary in the major Russian city now known as St Petersburg, for broadcasting music during World War II.

Tonight the orchestra, conducted by Alexander Dmitriev, performs Tchaikovsky’s sixth and final symphony, which brings with it a number of emotions. The composition premiered just nine days before the composer’s death and has since stirred much speculation, due to its unusual form and level of intensity. The composer hinted to his friends and admirers that the work might contain secret messages, but he never told them what they were. ‘Let them guess,’ he said.

On Natalie Clein’s recording of the Saint-Saëns concertos:

‘She finds a golden timbre and fleet elegance… This is as close as you’ll get to musical champagne; I’ve a feeling Saint-Saens would have approved.’ (BBC Music Magazine)

‘Natalie Clein is a comprehensively gifted player who performs these pieces with an ideal combination of warm-hearted expressiveness and astonishing technical agility. Warmly recommended.’ (International Record Review)

Tchaikovsky: Souvenir de Florence
Rachmaninov: Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini
Shostakovich: Symphony No. 10

Vladimir Fedoseyev, conductor
Andrei Korobeinikov, piano

Awarding the orchestra the name of this great Russian composer was in recognition of its role in promoting much of the music written by Tchaikovsky and for nearly 40 years the Tchaikovsky Symphony Orchestra has been headed by Vladimir Fedoseyev.

Tonight we hear Souvenir de Florence, which, despite being composed during a visit to Florence, contains distinctly Russian and folk-like melodies and rhythms, and Shostakovich’s dramatic Symphony No. 10, the first significant orchestral work to emerge in the Soviet Union after Stalin’s demise. The award-winning young Russian pianist Andrei Korobeinikov plays Rachmaninov’s captivating Paganini Rhapsody.

Part of Zurich International Orchestra Series 2013-14.

The regimental bands of the Household Division recently performed at Cadogan Hall in London, dressed in their iconic uniforms and black bearskin caps.

The ‘Scarlet and Gold’ concert ran for two evenings and also featured the Countess of Wessex’s String Orchestra, in a wonderful evening of musical excellence and grandeur.

The concert covered a diverse range of music, both old and new, upbeat and reflective, to suit a variety of tastes.
