Escape to the Country with BGSO

City orchestra to stage spring concert.

You’ll want to grab your wellies for the Birmingham Gay Symphony Orchestra’s spring concert, Escape to the Country, as they take a stroll through the countryside with music by Beethoven, Vaughan Williams and MacCunn. Now in their second season as resident orchestra at St Paul’s in the Jewellery Quarter, the BGSO will also be performing a selection of well-known tunes interspersed with the classical music.

Beethoven’s Pastoral symphony paints idyllic scenes, Vaughan Williams sings merry tunes from an England long ago and we venture north of the border with MacCunn’s Land of the Mountain and the Flood, a depiction of the vast Scottish wilderness. BGSO will be sprinkling a little some musical magic throughout the afternoon too – expect a selection of well-known tunes you’ll be whistling all the way home.

Jack Lovell, BGSO Musical Director, said: “I’m really looking forward to the concert in March – we’ve chosen one of my favourite symphonies, Beethoven’s Pastoral, which is full of beautiful melodies”.

Orchestra leader Kat Galbraith added: “At BGSO we love to make our audiences smile, so we’ve chosen some really joyful music for this concert – and we’ve kept a few surprises up our sleeves too!”

The concert takes place at St Paul’s in the Jewellery Quarter on Saturday 17th March 2018, 3pm-5pm. Tickets
