Stanley Kubrick’s masterwork 2001: A Space Odyssey memorably used classical music to enhance the images in his story. BPO performs works from the film as well as other pieces by composers whose music was featured.
Birmingham Philharmonic Orchestra is one of Britain’s leading non-professional symphony orchestras. BPO draws its members from throughout the West Midlands, and aims to achieve the highest standards of performance for its core repertoire: the large orchestral works from the early 19th century to the present day.
BPO has presented major works by Bartók, Mahler, Shostakovich and Stravinsky, as well as a concert performance in October 2019 of Wagner’s Das Rheingold. In association with Royal Birmingham Conservatoire, the orchestra stages the BPO Concerto Prize to recognise and encourage talented soloists.
