Join the internationally acclaimed Royal Philharmonic Orchestra for their debut concert at the Grimsby Auditorium on Wednesday, March 26.

Conductor Benjamin Pope joins the Orchestra and BBC Music Magazine’s ‘Rising Star’ Alexandra Dariescu for a concert of popular classics.

The thunderous opening chords of Tchaikovsky’s sublime Piano Concerto No.1 is framed by Rossini’s William Tell Overture, which paints a musical picture of life in the Swiss Alps (more commonly known as the main theme in the film The Lone Ranger) and Dvořák’s soaring masterpiece, Symphony No.9, ‘From the New World’; Inspired by Dvořák’s travels across America, this Symphony is by far one of the most famous and drew the Romantic era to a powerful close.

Founded in 1946 by Sir Thomas Beecham, the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra (RPO) has enjoyed more than 65 years of success worldwide, giving first-class performances of a wide range of musical repertoire with artists of the highest calibre.

Under the inspired leadership of Artistic Director and Principal Conductor Charles Dutoit, the Orchestra continues to flourish, maintaining and building on a demanding schedule of performances, tours, community and education work, and recordings.

The concert starts at 7.30pm and tickets cost £10 - £20, with premium seats £25.
