“It Was 50 Years Ago Today”

The Philharmonic Concerts Group enjoyed a special occasion on 31st May this year, marking 50 years since The Beatles’ “Sergeant Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band” revolutionised popular music. The Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra teamed up with the well known Bootleg Beatles to recreate all the tracks on the famous album, plus a few more for good measure.

A Triple Musical Celebration at the Phil!

The July 2016 visit coincided with Vasily Petrenko’s 40th birthday, his 10th Anniversary with the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra and the 10th visit of the Philharmonic Concerts group to the Summer Nights’ concert.  Group Leader, Ann Robinson, assembled  her members for this photograph before the coach left for Liverpool.
