About this event
Trend-mongers, philosophers and hunchmen. A car-chase, a love-in and a replica mahogany desk. A coughing mountain, a choir of stenographers and an exceptional swine-pig called Greggery. Nicholas Collon and the Aurora Orchestra give the first Proms performance of Frank Zappa’s high-energy counter-culture satire The Adventures of Greggery Peccary.
An arrangement of a zany Nancarrow study and the UK premiere of Philip Glass’s 10th Symphony complete a far-out late-night happening from one of Britain’s most vivacious young orchestras.
There will be no interval
