MICHAEL HANKINSON IN UK (article first published : 2006-07-17)

Michael Hankinson, Conductor Laureate and Composer in Residence of the Johannesburg Philharmonic Orchestra and well-known to Durban audiences, recently worked in the UK on several conducting commissions.

He conducted the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, with the London Concert Choir, at the Stonehage Charitable Trust 30th Anniversary Gala Concert in London with guest of honour Lord Attenborough. The charity supports Aids relief and education in Southern Africa.

Directly after this performance he travelled to Ireland where he appeared with Sean Bovim's Queen at the Ballet which was performed at the Point, Dublin. Michael conducted members of the RTE Orchestra, leading them through his energetic music arrangements.

Queen at the Ballet brings to life Freddie Mercury's musical vision and genius in the form of theatrical rock ballet. With a cast of 90 dancers, musicians and singers this show appeals to audiences young and old.
