MUSIC lovers are being invited to a live screening of Sir Simon Rattle’s farewell to the Berliner Philharmoniker at Pershore’s Number 8 Community Arts Centre this June.
On 14 November 1987, a promising conductor called Simon Rattle made his Berliner Philharmoniker debut with Gustav Mahler’s Sixth Symphony.
Looking back Rattle said: “I felt that I was finding my voice on that day.”
Mahler’s multi-faceted work is again on the programme when Sir Simon appears for the last time as chief conductor of the Berliner Philharmoniker.
The live screening from the Berliner Philharmonie will include exclusive interviews and programme insights as part of this historic event.
Number 8 will play host to the two hour concert from 6.30pm on Wednesday, June 20.
Tickets cost £14, with an 85p booking fee if bought online.
