Music from the Palm Court

2 April 2017, 03:00

Event type: Concert

Performers: Promenade Concert Orchestra conducted by Howard Rogerson

Celebrate with the Promenade Concert Orchestra as we host our 10th Palm Court Concert. This concert programme celebrates the wide range of Palm Court musical entertainment of the last hundred years and more and includes a PCO newly commissioned composition, “Lucia’s Dance” by our own, Julian Davies. As well as a rare Auber overture, ‘Masaniello’, and a suite by Arthur Sullivan, ‘Mascarade’, there are many lovely tuneful items which people may recognise when heard but composers names and titles long forgotten.  There are a couple of ‘Novelty’ items, ‘Clockwork Courtship’ and ‘Gnat’ two-step’ and a rare piccolo solo by Charles le Thiere – ‘Silver Birds’, a xylophone duet, ‘The Two Imps’ and a euphonium solo ‘Fleurette, I shall never forget’ by Haydn Wood, each performed by PCO members, reminiscent of pier orchestras in the great days of spa and watering places!

Venue: The Platform, Morecambe
