Welcoming the news, Richard Hall, who first proposed the concert said the performance will bring opportunities to Bath.

As a World Heritage City, Bath offers a spectacular setting for world class performance.

We hope that the added benefit of this event will be to open up more music opportunities for local children as well as to develop new commercial opportunities for local businesses.
