Following on from the success of our first New Year’s Family Concert in 2019 we are going to repeat the experience.

In a family friendly concert, we will welcome Opera North’s brilliant principal tuba player Brian Kingsley to play Tubby the Tuba. We will be performing many other popular favourites and some surprise items – including the piece chosen by our audience via our on-line poll.

We will also welcome back orchestra president, Lynne Dawson who will be our narrator in one of our surprise pieces.

Please note that whilst we will endeavour to perform the concert as shown, the orchestra reserves the right to amend the concert programme, soloist and ticket pricing should circumstances require.
