The British Police Symphony Orchestra is proud to celebrate its 30th Anniversary with a Charity Gala Concert at the Royal Albert Hall. This concert will feature over 670 performers, drawn from the police service throughout the United Kingdom, including massed choirs, pipe-bands and fanfare brass.
The Gala Concert promises to showcase the diversity of policing and the highest standards of musical talent. Presented by the orchestra’s very own PC Danny and television’s Nick Knowles.
The programme of music guarantees something for everyone, especially fans of James Bond and includes works by Sibelius, Quincy Jones, Wagner and Rick Wakeman. Over 5,000 blue flashing lights will fill the hall during his “Dance of a Thousand Lights” whilst our favourite television crime fighters will be easily identified by their themes in the world premiere of a specially commissioned suite, “A Musical Salute”. Mahler’s powerful finale to Symphony of a Thousand will provide a most fitting climax to this momentous celebration!
All proceeds will be used to support Care of Police Survivors (COPS) the National Foundation for Youth Music and the orchestra itself
