Guitar great plays a date at Brum's Symphony Hall

THE king of the classical guitar is to play Symphony Hall.

THE king of the classical guitar is to play Symphony Hall.

Award-winning John Williams has dabbled in almost every genre since the early 1960's from classical to pop, jazz to rock, Bach to Beatles.

A legend in his own lifetime, the Aussie has drawn both admiration and controversy and always enthrals audiences with a restless questing spirit to explore all forms of music.

During his career, Williams performed the soundtrack A Fish Called Wanda, has collaborated with Pete Townsend and George Martin and has used his music as a political tool, cancelling tours and festivals in protest against Margaret Thatcher and more recently, the Iraq invasions.

With a programme that runs the gauntlet through Vivaldi, traditional Irish tunes, Ennio Morricone and William's own material, the master musician appears at Symphony Hall on November 6.

Tickets are available from the box office on 0121 780 3333.
