How the West Was Won

A symphonic concert that celebrates the wild west in all its glory, HOW THE WEST WAS WON includes many of the timeless film themes that so vividly paint a picture of life in the American outback.

The concert also features themes from the many popular television programmes, and music from the classic stage productions set amongst the cowboys and cattle ranches.

Depending on requirements, HOW THE WEST WAS WON can be offered for one male singer/narrator or with the addition of a female singer.

‘Move 'em on, head 'em up, head 'em up, move 'em on’
