In celebration of their year as Borough of Culture for the Liverpool City Region, Wirral Council are proud to present a very special evening of popular classics, show tunes and exciting film standards with something for all the family.
Showcasing music from composers as diverse as Bizet, Lennon and McCartney, John Williams, Holst and others, including popular classics and songs such as ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone’, ‘Ferry ‘cross the Mersey’, and music from films such as Star Wars and E.T, the Orchestra will be joined by Liverpool-born international mezzo-soprano, Jennifer Johnston under the baton of conductor, Richard Balcombe. Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra’s only outdoor performance this year as a full Orchestra will be set against the majestic backdrop of Birkenhead Park – the first publicly funded park in the country.
Concert will last approx 80 mins, with no interval.
This event is part of a jam-packed weekend in Wirral with Birkenhead Park as the hub for a number of stellar events. This performance will take place as part of a September to remember at the park alongside Wirral Food and Drink Festival on Saturday 7 - Sunday 8 September followed by OVO Energy Tour of Britain on Wednesday 11 September.
