Summer concerts are to return to Kenwood House in Hampstead, London with the new The Heritage Live Concert Series taking place across two weekends in June 2018.
The first two shows of the series have been announced today, with country singer Kris Kristofferson performing on Friday 22nd June, while on Saturday 23rd June The Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra will perform Movie Themes by John Williams including music from Star Wars, E.T., Harry Potter, Jurassic Park and much more.
Sam Cooper, English Heritage’s General Manager at Kenwood, said: “We are thrilled to be bringing back the summer concerts to Kenwood. People have been asking us for ages when the concerts would return and while at this stage it’s for one year only, we’re hopeful that this will become an annual event. I can think of no better way to spend a summer’s evening than listening to wonderful music against the spectacular backdrop of Kenwood House.”
Promoter Giles Cooper said: “I’m absolutely delighted to be working alongside English Heritage in resurrecting the legendary Kenwood House Summer Concerts this coming June. Having attended previous concerts for many, many years (and from a very young age), I’m so excited to be bringing back everything that was so magical about Kenwood’s outdoor concerts. he entire GCE LIVE team looks forward to continuing Kenwood’s long tradition of mixing classical music with mainstream pop and culminating in a ‘Last Night of the Proms’ finale. GCE LIVE will be announcing headline artists over the coming weeks”
