30th Anniversary Concert
Featuring music from the movies - £25.00
Philharmonic Hall Concert Room
Tuesday June 11th 2019
Born in Hungary but at home in Liverpool, classical guitarists Peter and Zoltán Katona are a force of nature. It’s hard to believe they’ve been performing together for 30 years, but it’s true, and they’ve decided to celebrate Hollywood style, with an evening of music inspired by the movies – from John Williams, Leonard Bernstein and Ennio Morricone right through to Los Lobos and Game of Thrones. They always bring the house down: just watch those fingers fly!
