BPSO is thrilled to be able to perform live for you after such a lengthy absence and after such difficult times worldwide during the pandemic. Under the baton of Musical Director, Dr Richard Jenkinson, BPSO offers you the power of the theme from A Space Odyssey 2001 (Also Sprach Zarathustra); the poignancy of You Raise Me Up; and sing-along hits from The Sound of Music.
From John Williams’, Harry Potter Suite; and Hymn to the Fallen; to Stanley Black’s, Themes from James Bond, there truly is something for everyone. Uniting the police service with the magic of music to engage, excite and enlighten communities in the UK and beyond, the BPSO is a unique force of volunteers, drawn from across the United Kingdom. BPSO’s musicians are either serving or retired Police Officers, Police Staff or other members of the extended Police Family.
It is with great pride that our compere, serving officer, PC Danny Mizon, will guide us through these all-time favourites to the conclusion of the evening with our spectacular Proms Night finale, including Rule Britannia, Land of Hope & Glory, British Sea Songs and Jerusalem and flagship firework display. Bring your singing voices, your flags and streamers and join us as we celebrate being Back on the Beat in Birmingham!

Fresh from the Royal Albert Hall and Symphony Hall in 2019, it is with great pride that our compere, serving officer, PC Danny Mizon, will guide us through these all-time greats. Our compere Danny joined the orchestra’s percussion section in 1999. He sat on the management committee for a number of years with responsibility for communications.
Twelve years ago Danny took over the role as the orchestra’s compere at the annual Proms Night Spectacular and Family Matinee Concert at Symphony Hall, Birmingham each December.
He was soon invited to compere at Lichfield’s Proms in Beacon Park, a huge free event each September which currently attracts an audience of over 10,000. The orchestra had been headlining here for many years so it was a real honour for him to move to the front.
The character of PC Danny is now well known to the hundreds of young families that have attended our shows and they look forward to joining in his with his jokes and adventures each year.
Danny has been a police officer in London for 30 years and is currently employed on the Marine Policing Unit.

Through these performances and the orchestra’s outreach projects – Playout!, the BPSO engages with a wide range of other charities, excites audiences of all ages and enlightens by providing enrichment opportunities, through music, to all for whom this may otherwise be inaccessible.
