The new season will reach out to all with a diverse programme encapsulating UK premieres, débuts, familiar favourites and unique settings.
The Ulster Orchestra is also delighted that Jac van Steen has agreed to become Principal Guest Conductor and he will be conducting several concerts this season including a special cross-border collaboration with the RTÉ Concert Orchestra to present Britten’s mighty War Requiem in November at the majestic St Anne’s Cathedral.
Adding several new works to its repertoire, the Ulster Orchestra will celebrate the 150th anniversary this year of the birth of Richard Strauss and those next year of Sibelius and Nielsen. In January, Rafael will also conduct a concert of music from Latin America in Latin Rhythms, including his native Venezuela and Spain which promises to be one of the highlights of the season.
Taking in film and children’s events, a Sci-Fi Weekender in March sees the Ulster Orchestra’s first ever series celebrating the greatest musical collaborations in science fiction with Gottfried Huppertz’s original score for Metropolis performed live to the film. Completing the weekend, there will be a disturbance in the force at the Ulster Hall with a performance of Star Wars in Concert celebrating the music from Episodes 1-3.
The Children’s Festival of Music in June will combine a week of music, workshops and fun activities for children and young people – including a live performance to film of Peter and The Wolf, Disney in Concert, baby-friendly performances and an instrument petting zoo.
