Anthony Inglis and the
National Symphony Orchestra

on Cunard's Queen Mary 2
Transatlantic Sailing From New York to London
September 11 - 18, 2023


From September 11 - 18, 2023, a regular favorite in the Cunard calendar, the UK's National Symphony Orchestra sets sail again, with Maestro Anthony Inglis leading the ensemble in memorable orchestral performances in the Royal Court Theatre. Guests will enjoy an evening of all-American music, including Gershwin's "Rhapsody in Blue," after departing New York and an evening celebrating the best of British music before arriving in Southampton. Charismatic conductor Inglis leads the audience, guest choir, soloists, and orchestra in both concerts, as well as presenting another afternoon concert featuring Ravel's "Bolero."


Join me, Dr. Amanda Stringer, CEO of the Tallahassee Symphony Orchestra, on this memorable gigantic seven-night party across the Atlantic. I look forward to spending the week with you.
