#Sherlock music – hear it live at all these lovely concerts

Proms Pano

Proms Pano by Steve Bowbrick (@bowbrick)

It seems to me that there’s a wee bit of an omission to the rather wonderful-looking Sherlocked convention (#SherlockedEvent), which is the apparent lack of anyone talking about or performing the (award-winning! very popular!) music from the series, written by David Arnold and Michael Price. While I’ve had the pleasure of hearing both composers talk about their work separately I’m holding out hope that ‘the music of Sherlock‘ might have a role at the next event, perhaps with both of them talking about it (schedules permitting).

Happily though, the music from Sherlock will feature at David Arnold’s “A night at the movies” concerts in June (along with his other music from films like Independence Day and five of the James Bond films) and will also be perfomed at a Sherlock Holmes themed concert at Proms 2015 on Sunday 16 August (3.30pm) at the Royal Albert Hall in July. Tickets for that won’t go on sale until Saturday 16 May though and they’re priced between £9.50 and £46.
