Belshazzar's Feast

There will be a great performance of William Walton's Belshazzar's Feast in Durham Cathedral on Saturday 15 July at 7.30pm with the Reg Vardy Band in a special brass band arrangement. (Sir Thoma Beecham who conducted the premiere in Leeds Town Hall is reported as saying to the then young Walton, "No one will ever perform it again so you may as well throw in a couple of brass bands as well as the orchestra." - which Walton promptly did, so maybe we should throw a couple of orchestras into this performance)
