The cities in question are New York and Paris and the pieces reflect both of those great locations in a concert, conducted by Louis Langree (pictured), starting at 7.30pm.

New York is represented by the the contrasting sounds of Aaron Copland’s Quiet City and George Gershwin’s Rhapsody In Blue.

The French side of the equation is taken care of by Gershwin’s An American In Paris, plus Maurice Ravel’s Mother Goose Suite and Piano Concerto In G.
