Excitement is mounting in Bridlington for the return of The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra to Bridlington Spa – by popular demand – this Sunday, 21 July 2019, at 3pm.
Their concert will be a chance to boldly go where no one has gone before and explore galaxies far, far away with this world-famous orchestra.
Portfolio holder for tourism, culture and leisure, Councillor Shaun Horton, said: “This out-of-this-world concert for the whole family, full of music inspired by space, will introduce children to Debussy’s serene Clair de Lune, let them ride along with E.T., and enjoy selections from Star Wars and Apollo 13, plus much more!
“I am absolutely delighted that the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra is returning to Bridlington – their last visit was hugely popular and very memorable, and I know this will be just as exciting!”
This will be a rare opportunity to enjoy the world-famous Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. The fun and accessible concert will feature a range of pieces and interactive activities introduced by international composer and presenter Tim Steiner.
Community arts officer June Mitchell added: “Be prepared to sing along, get moving and help the orchestra perform stellar pieces of orchestral repertoire which are out of this world!”
There are still some tickets available for this very special concert: Adults £19.50, Concessions £17, Children £5.
On the previous day, Saturday 20 July, from 2pm to 4pm, there will be an opportunity to join musicians from the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and East Riding Music Hub for a fun, family workshop devising brand new pieces of music on the theme of ‘Outer Space’. In preparation for the RPO’s family concert at Bridlington Spa the following day, this short workshop will give participants the chance to try out instruments, meet members of the orchestra and create their very own pieces of music.
No prior musical experience is required and instruments will be provided, but participants already playing an instrument are invited to bring these along.
The workshop is recommended for children aged eight years and over and their families. Workshop tickets cost £3.
Tickets for the concert and the workshop are available from Bridlington Spa Box Office by calling (01262) 678258, or online at bridspa.com
