We regret to announce that conductor Richard Farnes has had to withdraw from the concert. We are grateful to Andrew Gourlay who will replace him. The programme remains unchanged.

‘Shine out, and make this winter night/Our beauty’s Spring, our Prince of Light!’ Yes, it’s November in Liverpool, but that doesn’t mean we can’t look forward to sunnier weather. Benjamin Britten understood the British climate, and his Spring Symphony is proof: a grand, rollicking shout for joy, driven by a raucous cow-horn and rising sap. With singers as good as these – plus Elgar and Vaughan Williams at their most unbuttoned – you’ll leave this concert with a spring in your step.
