New Worlds

The music of America and beyond, celebrating the 60th anniversary of the American Memorial Chapel at St Paul's

Join us for a celebration of American composers, musicians and works in our 'New Worlds' series of concerts this summer to mark the 60th anniversary of the dedication of the American Memorial Chapel. 

St Paul's has had a long relationship with the American people, formed largely after the Second World War, a conflict in which thousands of Americans based within the UK were to give their lives. The most visible striking reminder of this sacrifice and subsequent deep friendship can be found in the American Memorial Chapel - a space rebuilt after being destroyed in the Blitz and dedicated in its entirety to the American dead of WW2.

Artistic Director: Simon Johnson
Principal Sponsor: Katten Muchin Rosenman LLP
Supported by Grange Hotels and Coppa Club

From the new world to new worlds, a sonic and visual blockbusting finale to the series as Simon Johnson, the celebrated Organist of St Paul’s Cathedral, takes us through Holst’s spectacular odyssey in collaboration with the Space Visualisation Studio at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Centre and ethereal voices from St Paul’s Girls’ School, where Holst wrote his masterpiece. The concert will begin with a special message from the International Space Station! This will be a mesmerising spectacle, not to be missed.
