Grand Theatre Blackpool
We make a welcome return to The Grand Theatre Blackpool in March with a whirlwind journey through music inspired by dance in all its many and varied forms.
This concert has a bit of everything from Abba to Irish, Ballet to Broadway and Latin American to the Waltz under one roof. Imagine Bernstein alongside Offenbach, Marquez rubbing shoulders with Strauss and Irving Berlin tripping the light fantastic with Tchaikovsky.
An evening for all the family to enjoy.
Supported by the Halsall Foundation
Blackpool Symphony Orchestra was founded by Percy Dayman in 1921.
Our Centenary season was during COVID 19 lockdowns but we kept connected online throughout. Our composer in Residence, Edward Rugman, arranged Somewhere Over the Rainbow and our virtual recording raised over £3,000 for Blackpool Food Bank.
We celebrated our Centenary +1 season with four great concerts.
