We take our fun seriously!
Southport Orchestra contributed to the resort’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations on 9 th July with a
concert packed with a wide variety of light classical music. Playing to a lively and responsive
audience the programme featured no less than 16 separate items including Scottish Dances and a
Westminster Waltz, The Big Country to excerpts from Gershwin, The Way You Look Tonight, The
Princes Elizabeth Suite and of course Elgar’s Pomp and Circumstance. The orchestra’s trumpeters
also let their hair down with an enthusiastic rendition of Buglers’ Holiday! Special guest to the
concert was the return of harpist Heather Stark who accompanied the orchestra whilst also
presenting two stunning solo items.
Without doubt this was a most enjoyable evening of music for both the audience and players alike!
