The British Police Symphony Orchestra once again entertained thousands at Lichfield’s Proms in Beacon Park 2022.
The end-of-summer concert, which attracted an estimated 12,000 people, featured performances from the City of Lichfield Concert Band and the British Police Symphony Orchestra and was compered by the BPSO own’s Danny Mizon.
The City of Lichfield Concert Band played a mixture of popular classical music, medleys, film scores and pop tunes as concert-goers arrived and settled themselves.
The British Police Symphony Orchestra then took to the stage conducted by Richard Jenkinson with featured performances by singers Claire Prewer and Anando Mukerjee.
Despite predictions of rain, it remained dry in Beacon Park for the programme which included the Neopolitan song Core n’grato, the Star Wars Suite and Nessun Dorma from Turandot.
The rousing finale saw everyone on their feet waving their flags to the anthems Rule Britannia, Jerusalem and Pomp & Circumstance (Land of Hope and Glory) and they were treated to a spectacular fireworks display.
Our Musical Director, Dr Richard Jenkinson said “On a musical level it was a real delight to perform such a varied mix of eclectic pieces.”
