BBC television and radio personality, Brian Kay, has been President of the Promenade Concert Orchestra since its creation in 2007 by conductor, Howard Rogerson. He will be introducing the music he has chosen for the concert at the Platform on May 14th at 3pm, as well as conducting a number of items.
Brian has spent a lifetime in music as a founder member of the Kings Singers, a soloist and choral director as well as years presenting programmes for the BBC, but his interest and knowledge of Light Orchestral Music is nationally acknowledged. So it is with great pleasure that the PCO are finally able to welcome him to Morecambe to work with the them.
The programme includes the Light Cavalry Overture by Suppe and ends with the Roses from the South waltz by Johann Strauss II. In between there are many famous and popular English Light Music compositions by Eric Coates, Arthur Wood, Haydn Wood, Trevor Duncan, Frederic Curzon and Robert Farnon covering well-known signature tunes, novelty items, an Edwardian musical and Lancashire-born Ernest Tomlinson’s two most popular pieces. Well-known tunes to set your toes tapping and your ears a-ringing!
