COLOSSEUM is in the centre of Watford and was previously
part of The Town Hall. The Watford School of Music Youth
Orchestra regularly performed there and so it became the
obvious choice for the Clarendon.
to 1200 people, the venue is very suitable for large
symphony concerts as well as rock and pop events which
are a regular part of the programme. But the most
important quality of the hall is its acoustics which
makes it one of the most popular recording studios in
the UK if not the world.
screen scores such as The Mummy Returns and Lord
of the Rings have been recorded at the Colosseum.
Howard Shore, composer of the latter has said that he
will not record anywhere else! His latest score for Return
of the King is nominated for an Oscar.
the London Orchestras put on concerts in Watford and
also record at the Colosseum. There can not be many
places that can boast such a venue in their town!
Clarendon are delighted to be back in this great hall
and their performance will be enhanced by an acoustic
with a truly worldwide reputation.
