Coronavirus caused a shut-down of performing arts in the UK in 2020. But Royal Liverpool Philharmonic has been one of the busiest music organisations in the country, restarting its activity as soon as it was able, and working hard to overcome the challenges of managing a concert hall and learning programme in a pandemic, and with social distancing. And throughout, we remained focussed on our mission to enhance and transform lives through music.
Returning to the stage this season, hear Liverpool Philharmonic Hall fill with the sound of our full orchestra and voices from our choirs once more – we can’t wait to come back together.
We’re going in swinging with a Rat Pack-inspired Swingin’ Christmas, featuring hits made famous by Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Nat King Cole before decking the halls for Liverpool’s favourite Spirit of Christmas concerts, presented by John Suchet. For a full family singalong, we’re back with Santa’s Countdown to Christmas and as usual, fancy dress (not) optional!
And of course, no self-respecting set of Christmas traditions would be complete without a trip to see It’s A Wonderful Life. See in the New Year in New York style with the roaring 20s and fabulous 30s of Puttin’ on the Ritz. And finally, join us for another great Philharmonic tradition, our annual performance of Handel’s Messiah.
