Harringay, Haringey - So Good they Spelt it Twice!

10-year Old Conducts Liverpool Philharmonic at Harringay

Harringay's London Music Festival in 1947 included the hugely popular debut of Pierino Gamba. 10,000 people watched this ten year old boy conduct the Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra playing Beethoven and Dvorak. This You Tube Video shows Gamba conducting an orchestra in Paris in the same year as he came to Harringay. If you'd like to learn more about Harringay Arena, see my article on Wikipedia about the Arena.

Right there at the end, his hair style and gesture sweeping his fringe back look uncomfortbaly Hitlerian, nein?
