Start the new year celebrations in traditional style with a touch of glamour.
The Brighton Philharmonic Orchestra under the baton of Stephen Bell invites you to welcome in 2020 with a glittering afternoon of Viennese traditional music this New Year’s Eve at Brighton Dome.
Celebrating 30 years of their traditional New Year’s Eve Viennese Galas, travel back in time with the Brighton Philharmonic to the 19th century, the golden age of Viennese music and the famous Strauss family and friends. Visit the magnificent ballrooms of Vienna and discover a sparkling collection of wonderful waltzes, opulent overtures and polkas with pizazz. Sit back and enjoy some familiar orchestral favourites but be prepared for some unexpected surprises. Guest Conductor Stephen Bell, says:
“What better way to round off 2019 than with some celebratory music from Vienna in the company of the Brighton Philharmonic and star soprano Ailish Tynan. In addition to favourites from Strauss and Lehár, we will present some delightful operetta extracts and songs from Kálmánn and Stolz, plus a bit of British ballroom music at its best from Arthur Sullivan. Happy New Year!”
Award-winning Irish soprano Ailish Tynan joins the orchestra with a delightful selection of songs and arias from operettas and musicals of the 19th century and beyond. Ailish, a previous winner of the Recital Prize at the BBC Cardiff Singer of the World, has appeared at the first and the last night of the BBC Proms, and enjoys a thriving international career as an opera singer, recitalist and recording artist. She says:
“New Year’s Eve is fast approaching and I’m looking forward to celebrating it this year with Stephen Bell and the Brighton Philharmonic Orchestra! I’m singing some of my favourite repertoire including Vilja, which you are all more than welcome to join in with! It’s going to be a wonderful way to herald in New Year’s Eve with music so full of joy and gaiety that you’ll be dancing down the aisles home with a huge smile on your face. Don’t miss it!”
