The BBC Philharmonic Orchestra played live on stage in the Empress Ballroom. If that’s not amazing enough, each note was picked out and shown in a masterpiece of light on every wall, floor, person, chair and piece of furniture. Feel the music course through your body, watch the notes as they come to life!
