La La Land - Live On Screen With Orchestra Saturday 23 September 2017 York Barbican
It is being described as the film of its generation, capturing the hearts of everyone whilst breaking records around the world. Now LA LA LAND will be brought to audiences like never before via a huge screen accompanied by a 60-piece orchestra.
Set to be the ultimate immersive experience, the La La Land Live UK tour premieres at Manchester’s Bridgewater Hall before going onto Bristol, York, Birmingham, Edinburgh, and Dublin.
The score for LA LA LAND, composed by Justin Hurwitz who also scored director Damien Chazelle’s previous feature films ‘Guy and Madeleine on a Park Bench’, and ‘Whiplash’, has also received critical acclaim, particularly for the film’s show-stopping songs ‘City of Stars’ and ‘Audition (The Fools Who Dream)’.
Having garnered universal critical acclaim, LA LA LAND is a reinvention of the Golden Age of Hollywood cinema for modern times.
Written and directed by Damien Chazelle, LA LA LAND tells the story of Mia (Emma Stone), an aspiring actress, and Sebastian (Ryan Gosling), a dedicated jazz musician, who are struggling to make ends meet in a city known for crushing hopes and breaking hearts. Set in modern day Los Angeles, this original musical about everyday life explores the joy and pain of pursuing your dreams.

Russell Brand RE:BIRTH
Russell Brand announces a new stand-up tour of UK and Ireland, performing York Barbican 12 October 2017
What is real? Who are we? Where did this baby come from?
In RE:BIRTH, Russell Brand wrestles with these questions while unravelling the matrix of modern media, politics, sex, fatherhood and death. Join one of comedy’s fiercest talents as he tries to make sense of life having just made a new one.
"How do we make sense of the madness of our lives once we become parents? What am I going to tell my daughter about conformity and responsibility? What happens if she grows up to be like me or, worse, date someone like me?"
RE:BIRTH will begin in April 2017 and visit every corner of the UK and Ireland, finishing in November 2018. Tickets go on sale 10am, Friday 3 February 2017.
York Guildhall Orchestra Saturday 14 October 2017 York Barbican
Berlioz - Overture Le Carnaval Romain
Fauré - Pavane
Bartok - Piano Concerto No.3
Sibelius - Valse Triste
Sibelius - Symphony No.5
Simon Wright - Conductor
Grace Huang - piano
Fiona Love - Leader
It will be an absolute delight to welcome international concert pianist Grace Huang back to perform with us again - she last appeared with us in 2005, performing the Rachmaninov 2nd concerto. This time she will perform the wonderful third concerto of Béla Bartók - a superb work with tunes reminiscent of Bartók’s home country of Hungary.
The orchestra continues its journey through the major orchestral works of Sibelius - we have now reached his popular 5th Symphony. This season will see us perform a piece of Berlioz in each concert - starting with the sprightly overture Carnaval Romain.
York Guildhall Orchestra - Berlioz, David & Beetho Saturday 10 February 2018 York Barbican Centre
Although Ian Bousfield currently lives in Switzerland, York is his home town so it will be a double pleasure for us to welcome him to the Barbican for this concert. The David Concertino is a delightful but rarely played piece; the Pryor variations are insanely difficult but fantastic to listen to!
The other main piece for this concert will be the Beethoven Eroica symphony - a surprising first performance for the YGO. Berlioz will be represented by his overture Les Francs-Juges, full of grandeur and fizz - and of course with trombones to the fore.
The full programme is:
Berlioz - Overture Les Francs-Juges
David - Concertino in Eb for Trombone & Orchestra
Puccini - Nessun Dorma
Pryor - Variations on Blue Bells of Scotland
Beethoven - Symphony No.3 “Erioca” Tickets
