The Gothic Symphony - A Cosmic Event

Havergal Brian's 'Gothic Symphony'

Dr. Raymond Jones

Unforgettable experience

I first met my wife when she came to my radio station to get a copy of the Havergal Brian Gothic Symphony I had broadcast. Many years later, we heard the Gothic at RAH with Martyn Brabbins conducting, and got to meet him backstage after the concert. Greatest concert of my life (and I've been to thousands, having been a classical music broadcaster here in America for 60 years!). Happy birthday to your wonderful venue (I even have a RAH Christmas ormanent that I hang on the tree each year). Bravo!!!
