The Epsom Downs music nights continue this Summer after having already kicked off with Franki Valli and The Four Seasons and Will Young.
The Epsom Downs music nights continue this Summer with the chart topping, indie rock band, Razorlight performing their greatest hits live after an evening of horse racing on Thursday, 19th July. Formed in London back in 2002; lead singer Johnny Borrell and the band have gone on to sell 4 million albums, performing to sold out arena tours, headlining festivals and appearing on the front cover of magazines from NME to Vogue.
Following in quick succession, the "Purveyors Of Cool" - The Rat Pack Vegas Spectacular will hit the stage at the racecourse on Thursday 26 July. Performing some of the greatest classic hits of the 20th century including ‘Come Fly With Me’, ‘Volare’, ‘Under My Skin’, ‘Mr Bo Jangles’ and ‘Mack The Knife.’ This night will evoke wonderful memories of Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Sammy Davis in a live show that continues to be successful worldwide.
The Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra famed for their ever popular Last Night of the Proms programme, will be a fitting and powerful finale to Epsom Live! series on Thursday 2nd August supported by Soprano, Deborah Norman and tenor, John Hudson.
They will take the Epsom Downs audience through an exciting classical extravaganza of all-time favourites, including: Rossini’s galloping William Tell Overture, the majestic ‘Polonaise’ from Eugene Onegin, the dramatic ‘In the Hall of the Mountain King’ from Grieg’s Peer Gynt and the Mozart’s ever popular Marriage of Figaro Overture – plus well-loved operatic love arias, duets and excerpts from La Traviata, Carmen, Tosca, Turandot (‘Nessun Dorma’) and Gianni Schicchi (‘O mio babbino caro’). The climax of the evening will be a fantastic Last Night of the Proms finale (Rule Britannia, the Sailors’ Hornpipe, Jerusalem, Land of Hope and Glory), with plenty of chances for everyone to join in with the singing and flag-waving fun!
