The concert concludes with the symphonic explosion that is Tchaikovsky’s 1812 Overture.


Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra

Serving the South and South West of England, but with a national and international reputation. Regarded as “the cultural heartbeat of the South West”, performing over 140 concerts each year.

Stephen Bell, conductor

He’s the Associate Conductor at the Hallé, and has conducted most of the major British orchestras, as well as being a regular conductor of the BBC’s televised Proms in the Park concerts.

Regarding his career highlights to date, he says: “I’ve always been a big fan of film music; the ability of the music to enhance or compliment what happens on screen has always fascinated me. Without doubt, one of the finest ever exponents is the great John Williams, and so a career highlight for me has to be recording two of the Star Wars soundtracks with the composer himself.”
