Lichfield Proms 2016 musical programme



There are plenty of musical treats in store for the audience at this September’s Lichfield Proms in Beacon Park.

The British Police Symphony Orchestra is busy rehearsing, in readiness for this year’s free Lichfield Proms in Beacon Park, on Saturday 3 September.

The 65-piece orchestra will lead the main concert at 7.30pm. The conductor, Richard Jenkinson, will be joined on stage once again by experienced compere, Danny Mizon.

Together they will take concert-goers through the main programme on the night, which includes film scores from Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, Raiders of the Lost Ark and Harry Potter.

The audience will also be treated to Wagner’s Prelude to Act 3 of Lohengrin, Battle Symphony op.91 by Beethoven and Sea Songs by Henry Wood, as well as all the proms anthems.

Lichfield District Council’s free proms will also feature the two trained singers, Claire Prewer and Richard Coxon. They will be singing Highlights from Act 3 of Tosca by Puccini, and proms favourites such Rule Britannia and Land of Hope and Glory.

Councillor Andy Smith, Lichfield District Council’s Cabinet Member for Leisure & Parks, said: “With top class music, al fresco dining in the beautiful surroundings of Beacon Park, and plenty of community spirit, our eighteenth Lichfield Proms in Beacon Park promises to be a fantastic event for the whole family. This year we’ve also got an exciting surprise during the main concert at the end of the first half, so make sure you don’t miss it!”
