LONDON - Sir Anthony Hopkins is set to make his debut as a composer in Britain, when he unveils a new composition at a classical concert this summer.
The “Silence of the Lambs” star will present a brand new piece written for the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra (CBSO) as well as several of his original scores at a show in Cardiff, Wales.
“I am immensely happy to be working with the CBSO to bring my compositions to Britain for the first time,” contactmusic.com quoted him as saying.
“There are themes and passages in these pieces that have been several decades in the making and to bring them all vividly to life with one of the great symphony orchestras of the world is absolutely thrilling.”
He will also appear onstage to discuss his songwriting techniques with concert producer Tommy Pearson.
Sir Anthony’s concert will be held at St. David’s Hall in Cardiff, July 24.
