Tracks include the unforgettable hit songs MacArthur Park, Everlasting Love, California Dreamin’, God Only Knows, Downtown, Aquarius, The Sun Ain’t Gonna Shine (Anymore), Music To Watch Girls By, It’s Not Unusual – plus a special medley of ever-popular toe-tapping TV themes from that era (Thunderbirds, Mission: Impossible, The Avengers, Star Trek).

The RPO’s versatility and acclaimed artistic standards mark it out as one of today’s most forward thinking symphony orchestras. With more concerts than any other UK large ensemble, making great music at the highest level for the widest possible audience, the RPO has truly become Britain’s national orchestra.
