Before lockdown the orchestra pulled off a major coup in appointing one of the world’s leading musicians, Joanna MacGregor CBE as their new Music Director. COVID delayed her first season, but one year on her exciting programme is being re-instated at Brighton Dome Concert Hall and other venues across the city.
COVID-19 has not thwarted Joanna from producing a wonderful programme for the BPO featuring the Mozart, Brahms, Elgar and Ravel but also including film, folk music and Argentinian tango. The orchestra can’t wait to get back on stage to fire up audiences once more.
The 2021/22 season is Joanna MacGregor’s first season with the BPO and alongside the usual Brighton Dome Concert Hall events Joanna has programmed a number of chamber music concerts featuring the orchestra’s star players at Attenborough Centre for Creative Arts and St Luke’s Church (Queens Park).
