We’re off to see the wizard! John Wilson conducts this lavish orchestral score as a live accompaniment to a screening of the magical 1939 movie, complete with original vocals. Forget scratchy soundtracks: this is the chance to hear Somewhere Over the Rainbow, Follow the Yellow Brick Road and all your favourites in vivid orchestral technicolour – the perfect Bank Holiday treat for munchkins of all ages.

‘The debonair flair of a matinee idol. He drew a fabulous quality of sound from his outstanding orchestra.’ The Guardian on John Wilson at the BBC Proms
