On Thursday 5 March The Alexandra Palace Organ appeal and Royal College of Music presents…
A night with the Royal College of Music Philharmonic at Alexandra Palace
From 19:30 come and hear musicians from the Royal College of Music as they perform one of the best loved works in the classical repertoire – Holst’s The Planets.
This captivating concert also gives audiences the rare chance to hear the Palace’s legendary organ in action with a performance of Bach’s Toccata and Fugue in D minor and a special arrangement of Walton’s triumphant Crown Imperial. All proceeds from the event will go towards restoring the organ back to its 1929 state when it was heralded as ‘The Finest Concert Organ in Europe’.

Alexandra Palace is a charity, run for the benefit of everyone. Our Park, Palace and spectacular events have been enriching lives since 1863, but the coronavirus pandemic has hit us hard. To be blunt, we are looking at a £1m shortfall this year and the same again next year. We know this time has been hard on many people but, if you can afford it, your support will help us get through this crisis.
