The Senbla Concert Orchestra will provide the orchestral backdrop to British Christmas cinematic classic, Love Actually at the Usher Hall in early December. The RSNO is also performing there on two evenings with music from the movies and a special Christmas concert.

Directed by Richard Curtis and originally released in cinemas in 2003, Love Actually tells ten separate yet interweaving stories of love around Christmas time. The full, live orchestra will perform Craig Armstrong’s evocative score, with the film being projected onto the Usher Hall’s huge screen.

Begin the holiday season by experiencing Love Actually with  live orchestral backing on 8 December 2018 at 7.30pm.

The Snowman will take you on his magical journey through the winter sky. Enjoy this special showing of the festive classic on the large screen on 21 December, accompanied live by the RSNO and narrated by guest presenter Jamie MacDougall. Perfect for the whole family, join us for our Christmas party filled with seasonal favourites, carols old and new – and, of course, a chance for everyone to sing along!

On 16 November the RSNO will reunite with the legendary film label Varèse Sarabande to celebrate its 40th anniversary in style, with live performances of music from some of the greatest TV shows and films ever made.

Varèse producer Robert Townson is joined by conductor Diego Navarro and an exciting group of superstar composers – including the legendary Patrick Doyle and Rachel Portman – as the orchestra looks back on some of the label’s greatest highlights.

There will be tributes to Jerry Goldsmith (Alien), Elmer Bernstein (To Kill a Mockingbird) and Alex North (Spartacus), plus blockbuster television themes (Game of Thrones) and movies (The Goonies, Back to the Future, The Matrix, The Abyss, The Iron Giant, Terminator 2, The Last of The Mohicans and Stargate).
