From the high seas to Hollywood and from outer space to virtual reality the Conservatoire Pops Orchestra presents a spectacular evening of film classics also featuring a world première composed by Conservatoire composition student, Ben Weatherill.
Experience the aural and visual splendour of a live symphony orchestra in full 'Hollywood' swing, delivering the 'force' of Star Wars, the breadth of Lord of the Rings to the infectious good humour of recent hits such as How to Train your Dragon.
Why not treat yourself and start the weekend by joining us for our early evening Film Spectacular?
The Conservatoire's programme of orchestral concerts provides a journey into large scale repertoire. Concerts feature soloists who are recent graduates, those studying in their final year or our postgraduates, and often highlight a particular composer or theme.
Chamber music also holds a special place within Birmingham Conservatoire and throughout our history we have had links with some of the finest musicians working in this field.
