In 2010, the BBC Concert Orchestra appointed Keith Lockhart as Principal Conductor and Johannes Wildner as Principal Guest Conductor, complementing Conductor Laureate Barry Wordsworth. Mr. Lockhart has been Conductor of the Boston Pops for eighteen seasons and Mr. Wildner came to the job with over a decade’s experience with the Vienna Philharmonic.
For this event, the La Jolla Music Society program will highlight works by Britten, Elgar and Butterworth. Children six and up will be admitted, with British fare provided by the God Save the Cuisine food truck.
