John was the Musical Director for this historic event to mark the 75th Anniversary of VE Day, when the Nazis surrendered to end the Second World War in Europe. It was the first concert to an empty house (due to COVID19 restrictions) in the great venue’s 149-year history. John arranged the music for piano and featured artists Jess Gillam (soprano saxophone), Gabriella Swallow (cello) and a military trumpeter for the Finale, Parry’s Jerusalem.
