  • Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra in Barrow-in-Furness

Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra in Barrow-in-Furness

Over the next three years, we’re thrilled to be bringing all that we do to Barrow-in-Furness.

Working in collaboration with a wide range of fantastic partners including The Forum, BarrowFull, Cumbria Music Education Hub, North West Music Academy, Westmorland & Furness Council, and with the support of Arts Council England we’ll be bringing something for everyone, whether you’re a fan of classical music or this is your first time hearing an orchestra.

The Orchestra and Chief Conductor Domingo Hindoyan will be bringing you a stunning selection of show-stopping performances and inspirational music-making projects. There’ll also be events specially designed for under-5s, chamber music concerts, dementia-friendly performances, and collaborations with local arts organisations.

And that's not all - we're putting together a youth programme that'll grow every year, working with teachers across Barrow to enrich music education through workshops and live performances in schools.

You can catch us all around town – The Forum, Barrow Town Hall, Barrow Library, St Mary of Furness Church and yet to be revealed pop-up locations – so come along and get involved. We can’t wait to see you.

Chloe Rooke conductor
Jasdeep Singh Degun sitar
Harkiret Bahra tabla
Children from Barrow primary schools*

Winner of the Royal Philharmonic Society's 2024 Instrumentalist of the Year Award, Jasdeep Singh Degun was born in Leeds, but his music evokes whole worlds, and his sitar playing… well, let’s just say that it has to be heard to be believed. Tonight at The Forum he joins the Orchestra and tabla virtuoso Harkiret Bahra to perform his own sitar concerto Arya – a lyrical, brilliantly imaginative tale of different musical cultures, united by a willingness to explore, and (above all) by the spirit of song. Carrying this spirit, children from Barrow primary schools also join with the Orchestra for a special performance of George Harrison’s Within You Without You.

Beethoven in Barrow  
The Forum 

Beethoven Violin Concerto
Beethoven Symphony No.3, ‘Eroica’

Domingo Hindoyan conductor
Veronika Eberle violin

Ludwig van Beethoven saw red when his hero Napoleon betrayed the revolution, tearing up the score of his Eroica symphony. That same energy pulses through every bar of this game-changing work, and Domingo Hindoyan certainly won’t hold back tonight. But Beethoven was a poet, too, and when Veronika Eberle plays his radiant Violin Concerto, you’ll hear just how beautiful music can be.
