Just a few days after the 75th anniversary of the Battle of Britain the BBC Singers make a ground-breaking visit to the Royal Air Force Museum London for a concert which marks not just that famous aerial combat, but also celebrates man’s long fascination with powered flight – from Icarus to the Space Age.

The programme includes the world premiere of Three Spitfire Motets by Edward Cowie, Eric Whitacre’s musical portrayal of the flying-machine invented by Leonardo da Vinci, and Airplane Cantata ­­Gabriel Jackson's extraordinary musical of the aeronautical age, in which the BBC Singers are accompanied by virtuoso pianola-player Rex Lawson.

The concert will be held in the Museum’s Historic Hangars, a completely unique musical occasion.

Application for tickets opens August 2015.

Admission is on a first-come, first-served basis. Please note that as not everyone who asks for tickets uses them, to make sure we have a full house we send out more tickets than there are places. We do our best to get the numbers right, but unfortunately we occasionally have to disappoint people so please arrive early.
