Sponsors’ Reception: Sun 26 March

Apr 16, 2017

Some images from the Sponsors’ Reception that took place immediately after the Brighton Phil’s 2016/17 season finale at Brighton Dome on Sunday 26 March.


We were delighted that so many musicians were able to join us to thank everyone for making the season possible.

The Mayor of Brighton & Hove, Councillor Pete West, gave a lovely speech about how the Brighton Phil was part of the musical fabric of the city, and Chairman Nicolas Chisholm presented Peter Back with a few tokens of our appreciation for his 19 seasons as programme-note writer and pre-concert interviewer as he stepped down from these roles. He also thanked the many Friends who support the orchestra whether by sponsoring a Principal Player, a concert, or our developing education programme. He reminded everyone that as the orchestra receives no public subsidy the very generous support of the Friends keeps the orchestra alive and thriving.


The event closed with some final words of thanks by Conductor Laureate Barry Wordsworth looking forward to next season (when he will be conducting no fewer than five BPO concerts at Brighton Dome.)
