Stewart Copeland Lights Up the Orchestra

Immerse yourself in a high-impact orchestral celebration of Stewart Copeland’s legendary career, from The Police to Hollywood via Africa.

One of the founding members of post-punk powerhouse band The Police, Copeland went on to write the scores for films including Francis Ford Coppola’s Rumble Fish and Oliver Stone’s Wall Street. Hear his epic music arranged for orchestra in this live performance.

This concert takes in the best of Copeland, from the musical odyssey of album and documentary film The Rhythmatist and the main theme from thriller The Equalizer to the music for much-loved platform game Spyro the Dragon.

Co-arranged and conducted by musical director Troy Miller (producer for Jamie Cullum, Laura Mvula and Gregory Porter).
