Memories of Summer


Tait Winter Prom 2016


Sponsored by Commonwealth Bank of Australia



The Tait Memorial Trust returns to St John's Smith Square for their 5th annual Winter Prom. Now in its 24th year, the Trust supports young Australian performing artists who come to the UK to complete their advanced studies in music, dance and composition. We are thrilled that Jessica Cottis has agreed to conduct and musically direct the Tait Chamber Orchestra, of young Australian musicians and has selected the programme to showcase our award winners but also to acknowledge the tyranny of distance and the longing many of us feel for the wide open spaces of Australia. Proudly supported by the Commonwealth Bank of Australia we invite you to join us as we explore our memories of Summer.
