Established in 2014 by Patrick Massey and Rosie Wintour, the Pico Players have quickly grown to become one of London’s leading amateur orchestras, raising over £60,000 for charity to date. Proceeds from this concert went to A Choir With No Name.
As befitting a celebration, the program included Gershwin’s ever-popular Rhapsody in Blue and Turina’s sizzling Danzas fantásticas which together make a flashy prelude to Tchaikovsky’s Fourth Symphony.
