Cunard Line guests aboard the 14 October 2012 Eastbound Transatlantic Crossing on flagship Queen Mary 2 will have the opportunity to enjoy performances by select members of London’s prestigious National Symphony Orchestra (NSO).
Under the direction of GRAMMY®-nominated conductor Anthony Inglis, the NSO will give two concerts throughout the seven-day Crossing, one a tribute to American music, and the other in traditional “Last Night of the Proms” style. In an exclusive partnership between Cunard Line and the NSO, guests will have the opportunity to join an all-passenger chorus. They will rehearse and perform with Inglis and the NSO on stage and lead the audience in song during the latter concert, on the final evening of the voyage.
The line-up for this year’s passenger-led chorus includes landmark numbers such as “Rule, Britannia!,” “Jerusalem,” and “Land of Hope and Glory.” Guests interested in participating in this year’s chorus can find detailed information in advance of the sailing here.
The only liner to provide regularly scheduled Transatlantic service between New York and Southampton, Queen Mary 2 offers the ultimate luxury cruise vacation, rich in classic British traditions, fine cuisine and stimulating on board enrichment.
