The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra will return to Scunthorpe next month with a Spanish influence.

The Orchestra is performing at The Baths Hall on Friday 1st November with the Spanish Fiesta! and evening of orchestral favourites, deeply infused with the sounds and rhythms of sunny Spain.

The performance follows two other wonderful concerts by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra earlier this year, including a fantastic Film Gala night featuring theme tunes from blockbuster movies.

For November’s concert, Bizet’s fiery Carmen and Fauré’s stately Pavane frame Rodrigo’s ever-popular Concierto de Aranjuez, full of sunshine and performed by rising star Stewart French, under the baton of Spanish conductor Eduardo Portal.

Rossini’s The Barber of Seville Overture opens the evening with its memorable melodies, Piazzolla’s feisty Libertango adds a dab of dance and the spirited Rimsky-Korsakov’s Capriccio espagnol provides an excellent finale.

The event is all seated. Tickets are priced between £15 and £30, booking fee may apply.
