Mission possible: Neilson Hays Library concert features iconic film scores


R2, a leading violin and cello duo, will give two rounds of an unforgettable charity concert, "Film Music Concert", at Neilson Hays Library, Surawong Road, on Friday and Saturday at 7.30pm.

As suggested in the title, the evening programme will feature a unique set of arrangements from some of the most iconic scores from popular franchises, including Harry Potter, Star Wars, Raiders Of The Lost Ark, Mission Impossible, Spider-Man and Pirates Of The Carribean.

R2 is a husband-wife musical duo comprising Welsh violinist Rhys Watkins and cello player Rowena Calvert. They have been featured on many of the original soundtracks for these films, having spent years working in London recording at Abbey Road and Air Lyndhurst Studios with the London Symphony Orchestra and the Chamber Orchestra of London.

The duo was formed to help raise money through concerts for charities that are committed to making a difference in the world. From saving endangered species in Asia to cleaning the world's oceans of plastic, they seek to heighten global awareness through their energising and eye-popping performances.

The upcoming shows will raise funds for the Born Free Foundation, which is committed to the conservation and welfare of wildlife across the globe.

Tickets cost 950 baht (850 baht for library members) and will not be available for purchase at the door. Seats are limited. Audiences are required to bring proof of negative ATK test results.
