A promotional documentary of The Purcell School Symphony Orchestra, Symphonic Dances at The Cadogan Hall, London.
Produced by Oliver Bowring.

A promotional documentary for The Purcell School Symphony Orchestra at Cadogan Hall, London.  The Symphonic Dances concert was conducted by Natalia Luis Bassa featuring pieces ranging from Rachmaninoff to an original composition from a student at the Purcell School. The concert was edited in full for DVD release but this promotional documentary is the highlights with interviews shot during rehearsals with Purcell School staff, Conductor Natalia Luis Bassa as well as student composers and musicians accompanied by choice extracts of each piece.

The Purcell School is one of the leading institutions in teaching the next generation of musicians and this video aimed to reflect that by bringing the way classical music is recorded into the modern age with our staple 4K/cinematic look.
