The conductor and composer Gregory Rose is 70 this year, and in celebration he is bringing his Jupiter Orchestra to St John's Smith Square on Wednesday 18 April 2018, for a programme of his own music including a number of world premieres. The orchestra will be joined by the Jupiter Singers, mezzo soprano Loré Lixenberg and violinist Peter Sheppard Skærved to perform Gregory Rose's 7 Dances from Danse Macabre, and Birthday Ode for Aaron Copland, plus the world premieres of 5 Schwitters Songs and Violin Concerto.

Gregory Rose studied with Hanns Jelinek (Vienna Music Academy) and Egon Wellesz (Oxford University), both former students of Arnold Schoenberg, as well as with his father Bernard Rose, the distinguished organist and composer who was Informator Choristarum at Magdalen College, Oxford.
