It will be a once-in-a-lifetime experience when Procol Harum, on 19 and 20 August, contribute symphonic rock music in cooperation with DR Promenade for the traditional Castle Concerts. And Povl Dissing, Benny Andersen and Svante also turn up! House and Leisure is on the spot again.
As usual House and Leisure has allied with the DR Promenade Orchestra in presenting this year's Castle Concerts at Ledreborg Castle to our readers. Three readers can win a tour to the concert on 20 August including a picnic-basket to make it possible to spoil your loved one: as an event, it will be culinary, but first and foremost musical.
Legendary Procol Harum, led by Gary Brooker, is top of the bill at the DR Castle Concerts on 19 and 20 August 2006 in the Ledreborg Park. For the first time in Scandinavia an audience can hear classics like A Whiter Shade of Pale, Conquistador and A Salty Dog in grand orchestrated versions as when, in 1972 the band made rock history with the multi-selling album Live in Concert with the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra. In this case of course it's the DR Promenade Orchestra that will add the "gravy" sound to the classic numbers and supported by the Radio-Choir.
Procol Harum to this day has only played very few grand concert-events – and never before in Scandinavia. But at the Castle Concerts 2006 this is becoming reality and in the most beautiful surroundings imaginable.
Support act will be Povl Dissing & Benny Andersen with songs from Svantes Viser. Accompanied by DR Promenade Orchestra, conducted by David Firman, the musical pair will have other songs on their repertoire and the audience will have the opportunity to sing along.
Ticket sales to this unique concert have already started: be aware that tickets sell quickly. Usually it's a sell-out at the beginning of May. House and Leisure has got six tickets for the concert and also picnic-baskets from Meyers Kitchen. So answer the question, send the coupon and win a tour-treat for two."
