Broadway to the Bay
To celebrate 10 years of the Wales Millennium Centre, The Novello Orchestra joined stars of the West End and Broadway in 3 sell-out shows, featuring Kerry Ellis, Ruthie Henshall, John Owen-Jones, Tenors of Rock, Sophie Evans, Lucie Jones, David Thaxton, Rhydian Roberts, Shan Cothi, Caroline Sheen, Russell Grant and an ensemble of dancers.
The Novello Orchestra is delighted to be joining the legendary American group Pink Martini in a special performance at the Wales Millennium Centre as part of their 2014 UK Tour.
The group has been described as something between a 1930s Cuban dance orchestra, a classical chamber music ensemble and a Brazilian marching street band, and The Novello Orchestra is delighted to be a part of their debut WMC performance on Tuesday 28th October 2014, featuring vocalist China Forbes.
