Description
BPO

Birmingham Philharmonic Orchestra, acclaimed as "one of the best non-professional orchestras in the land", has been entertaining audiences throughout the Midlands and beyond for over 70 years, performing at venues such as Birmingham's Symphony Hall, Town Hall and Adrian Boult Hall, as well as St John's Smith Square (London) and cathedrals in Lichfield, Coventry and Wells.  Its wide-ranging repertoire includes the great symphonies of Mahler, Sibelius, Elgar and Shostakovitch, popular orchestral works by Tschaikovsky and others of the Romantic period, and music for film and theatre. 

Now based at the University of Birmingham - where it rehearses each Sunday morning - BPO is looking forward to its first-ever performance - A Night at the Movies -  in the fine Elgar Concert Hall on Thursday November 21st at 7.30pm. 

There can be no more thrilling sound than that of a large symphony orchestra in full flow; so whether you're a regular concert-goer or a first-timer, you will find much to enjoy here!  Music will feature from (among others):

  • Elmer Bernstein: The Magnificent Seven (Theme);
  • John Barry: Born Free (Theme),
  • Out of Africa (Theme)
  • John Williams: ET - The Extra-Terrestrial (Suite), Star Wars Suite, Jurassic Park (Theme), Superman March
