The John Wilson Orchestra

Award-winning conductor and arranger John Wilson formed The John Wilson Orchestra in 1994. This unique, handpicked ensemble of some of the world's finest musicians is loved for its jubilant, modern musical take on the most romantic and glamorous film era.

A lifelong interest in film music led John Wilson to restore a number of classic film scores. He accepted an enormous challenge from MGM: reconstructing the lost orchestrations of all their major musicals including The Wizard of Oz, High Society, Singin' in the Rain, The Band Wagon and An American in Paris. The new scores became the cornerstone of The John Wilson Orchestra concerts. Their wildly successful, sold-out Proms appearances have been praised as "Technicolor for your Ears" by The Independent, and viewed on BBC-2 by millions of fans from all generations.
