NEW YORK: Procol Harum, English rock group which last November recorded a live album with the Edmonton (Canada) Symphony Orchestra and released on A&M Records is talking of performing in several major concerts with European and/or Canadian symphony orchestras next fall.
The pop band, on Chrysalis Records (distributed by Warner Bros.) is coming out with a new album early in 1973 called Grand Hotel which has classical music overtones including waltz music.
Now on an extended concert tour on the US, Procol recently
toured Vienna, Zurich, Nuremberg, Munich and Frankfort with the
Munich Chamber Orchestra plus the Munich Boys Choir. Following
that, they performed with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra
of London at the Rainbow Theater. The theater is London's top rock hall,
and is owned by Biffo Corp., a subsidiary of Chrysalis. [Procol
