RUSH HOUR #11: SOHO
ST JOHN’S WATERLOO

Guy Barker A Soho Symphony

Guy Barker conductor
With an introduction written by John Sessions and read by Steve Furst

Soho: the beating heart of the West End and for decades the stage for a night to remember. A Soho Symphony is a tale of boy meets girl, but one where destiny is delayed. We wander the streets for a day, taking in multiple espressos, murky historical tales, music clubs for the alcoholically adventurous, fuzzy heads, jazz ghosts, groupies and ‘music to disrobe by’. With a new dawn comes clarity of thought, but is it all too late?

Twice nominated for the Mercury Prize and today one of the world’s leading jazz trumpeters and composers, Guy Barker expertly blends classical, jazz, blues and more to paint a portrait of the life and soul of London. Hear a brief preview of the symphony here.
