The Thames Diamond Jubilee Pageant iPad app, featuring the London Philharmonic Orchestra, is currently No. 1 in the iPad charts and Editor’s Choice in the iPad App Store.
The app takes you on a multimedia journey along the river, viewing 60 iconic London landmarks along the way to celebrate 60 years of Queen Elizabeth II’s reign. Beginning with the contemporary buildings and modern architecture of Chelsea Harbour and ending with the iconic 126-year-old Tower Bridge, the app navigates the river and its historical surroundings through over 90 full-screen images, music, audio and text with fun ‘did you know?’ facts.
The LPO features alongside beautiful time-lapse videos of the river with short bursts of the rousing music to be performed during the pageant on Sunday 3 June, when the Orchestra will perform popular works by great British and Commonwealth composers on the glass-fronted herald music barge, Symphony.
The app is priced £1.99 and 50% of the profits from the app will be donated to the Thames Diamond Jubilee Foundation.
