Concert in aid of The Police Treatment Centre

Saturday 18th May 2024, 7:30pm
Ripon Cathedral

For one night only, the British Police Symphony Orchestra’s Musical Director switches his baton for his cello. Dr Richard Jenkinson, a member of the Dante String Quartet and previously the principal cellist of the CBSO, gets to face the audience and perform the stunning Elgar Cello Concert as the opener to the BPSO’s first concert in the stunning Ripon Cathedral.
With guest conductor Malcolm Webb quite literally picking up the baton, the award-winning BPSO provides the accompaniment to what is one of the most famous and loved pieces of English orchestral music.
The orchestra will also be performing the ballet music from Holst’s comic opera The Perfect Fool and, Elgar’s Cockaigne Overture, finishing with Respighi’s Pines of Rome.

The Police Treatment Centre

All profits from the concert will go to support The Police Treatment Centres, a registered charity which provides first class rehabilitation centres in Harrogate (North Yorkshire) and Auchterarder (Perthshire).
These police-specific facilities deliver physical rehabilitation and psychological well-being support for conditions or injuries sustained on or off duty for members of 28 UK forces.
It costs £6.5 million a year to run these centres, 90% of which is funded by officer donations. Fundraising events such as the BPSO’s concert are vital to ensure that The Police Treatment Centres can continue to meet the increasing physical and psychological well-being needs of the ever-changing police family.

Now in its fourth decade, the BPSO has become one of the best national, non-professional orchestras in the country. Its members generously volunteer thousands of hours of their time raising money for charity and undertaking outreach projects, and we are very proud to support them in these efforts.”
