British Police Symphony Orchestra to Play in Chelt

Posted: 27/03/2007 15:27:44

Cheltenham Ladies College will play host to a concert by the British Police Symphony Orchestra (BPSO) in the summer. The event, part of the BPSO events programme for 2007, is to be held in the highly prestigious Princess Hall on Saturday June 2nd at 7.30pm.

Chief Constable of Gloucestershire, Timothy Brain, who is also the chairman of the BPSO, is clearly excited about the prospect of seeing them perform in such an impressive setting.

He said: "This is a unique opportunity to attend a wonderful event at a beautiful location on our doorstep. The BPSO are a talented group of musicians and really this should not be missed."

It's not the first time they have performed on such a big stage, having played prominent venues including London's Barbican and Birmingham's Symphony Hall in their illustrious 15-year history.

The BPSO is rightly regarded now as a significant part of the national orchestral scene, and according to Chief Constable Brain, its success is down to the dedication of its members:

"Its musicians are all members of the greater police family from the UK and include police officers, support staff and retired members, who come together in their own time and expense each month for detailed rehearsals or expert sectional tuition," he said.

He continued: "The future is promising for this wonderful group of musicians who do a great deal to display the diverse talents that make up the British Police Service and in whom the service can be justly proud."

They can indeed be proud, with the combined efforts of the BPSO having resulted in over £100,000 being raised for worthwhile causes in the last ten years. The Cheltenham concert will continue this trend, with any money raised from the evening to be donated to The Three Choirs charity. The charity helps run the oldest surviving non-competitive music festival in Europe which this year will be held in Gloucester.

If anyone would like to attend the concert in Cheltenham, the concert tickets are priced £12 and are available from the tourist information offices in Cheltenham (The Promenade) and Gloucester (Southgate Street). They can also be purchased from Miss Enid Castle c/o The Three Choirs Festival office 7c College Green, Gloucester GL1 2LX. Please include a stamped addressed envelope.
