~January. A time of the year where some of us begin burning off the calories from the festive period. A time where anything remotely exciting rarely happens or if it doesn’t happen it’s unlikely to be joyous. What if I was to tell you about an event that will brighten up a fairly dismal January evening?

On Friday 12th January 2018 The Halle is coming to the Blackburn King Georges Hall for a night of classical favourites. Lancashire born conductor Stephen Bell will direct the orchestra through wonderful pieces from romantic waltzes to stirring marches. In addition, Jennifer France will be providing the vocal arrangement throughout the evening.

Here is the programme in full :-

Strauss II Die Fledermaus: Adèle’s Laughing Song

Lehar The Merry Widow: Vilja-Lied
