Liverpool Philharmonic Hall reopens with all of this Christmas entertainment

26/11/2020

Liverpool Philharmonic has announced it will be reopening on Thursday 3 December with a Christmas and New Year programme for all ages.

Today’s tier 2 announcement means entertainment venues such as the Philharmonic Hal can reopen and can get shows underway for Christmas.

There’s plenty to choose from at Liverpool Philharmonic Hall including:

  • A programme of seasonal favourite from Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra and Choir 3 – 31 December.
  • Family concerts including The Snowman with Live Orchestra and Nutcracker – Reimagined with pianist Alexandra Dariescu and the Orchestra’s brass ensemble.
  • Connie Lush’s legendary Christmas Concert, Ian Prowse & Amsterdam and Perfectly Frank on New Year’s Eve complete the festivities.
  • John Lennon – A Life in Music concerts commemorating 40 years’ since The Beatles’ death (9, 10 and 11 December).

Vasily Petrenko leads Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra and mezzo-soprano and Artist in Residence, Jennifer Johnston back to the stage on Thursday 3 December. They perform Ginastera’s Variaciones concertantes, Respighi’s Il Tramonto and Bizet’s Carmen for percussion and strings. Later in the month, conductor Stephanie Childress leads the Orchestra on 16 and 19 December as they perform repertoire including Mozart’s joyful and lively Eine Kleine Nachtmusik.

Ian Prowse & Amsterdam 14-piece band Christmas knees up will get audiences in the festive spirit! Ian and the band are determined to keep the end of year show tradition going and say goodbye to what has been a very difficult year with a defiant bang (12 December).

Connie Lush - Liverpool Philharmonic

With ‘A voice like 3am whiskey’ (The Times), singer Connie Lush brings her legendary Christmas concert with her full band – Terry Harris on bass, Steve Wright on guitar and Roy Martin on drums (13 December).

Members of the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Choir sing popular Christmas carols a cappella this year, under conductor Ian Tracey: ‘Ding Dong Merrily on High’, ‘The Little Drummer Boy’, ‘The Holly and the Ivy’, ‘Carol of the Bells’, ‘In the Bleak Midwinter’, ‘Silent Night’, ‘Deck the Hall’ to name a few (17, 21 and 23 December).

The Snowman with Live Orchestra returns to the Hall. The classic film features a little boy building a new friend in a snowy garden. Also included are other seasonal treats, including music from the film Frozen (19 and 20 December).

The Nutcracker – Reimagined features Pianist Alexandra Dariescu and the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Brass and Percussion Ensemble each performing different parts of Tchaikovsky’s wonderful music. Joined by a narrator and two ballet dancers, all come together to retell this seasonal classic like it’s never been told before (30 and 31 December).

And on New Year’s Eve, bringing the swing of Sinatra alive, Perfectly Frank by David Knopov, is a tribute to the legendary Frank Sinatra and is without a doubt one of the most successful Frank Sinatra tributes around (31 December).

In October we spoke to Millicent Jones the Executive Director of Audiences and Development at Royal Liverpool Philharmonic who told us about the impact of 2020 on the iconic venue.

Concerts for January to March will be announced soon. Tickets for December concerts at Liverpool Philharmonic Hall cost from £19 per person.
