The Sunflower Jam is excited to announce that “Celebrating Jon Lord At The Royal Albert Hall” on April 4th 2014 will include performances by the Orion Orchestra – ‘the Orchestra of Rising Stars’ – and will be conducted by Paul Mann, a close friend and musical partner of Jon Lord.
Paul & Jon’s last project together was the recording of Jon Lord’s Concerto for Group and Orchestra in 2011-2012 with the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra. Paul will conduct the Orion Orchestra, formed in 2005 by Toby Purser. Since then, the Orchestra has become recognised as one of the most dynamic orchestras for the cream of London’s music college students and graduates, with a repertoire stretching from the music of Azerbaijan to a concert and CD with Rick Wakeman (who of course, will also be performing at the concert).
