A series of top orchestral concerts has been announced for the Hippodrome Circus in what is being described as a “major coup for the town.”

The three Symphonies by the Sea will begin on November 19, with a visit by the Munich KlangVerwaltung Orchestra presenting a programme of Wagner, Mozart and Beethoven.

A series of top orchestral concerts has been announced for the Hippodrome Circus in what is being described as a “major coup for the town.”

The three Symphonies by the Sea will begin on November 19, with a visit by the Munich KlangVerwaltung Orchestra presenting a programme of Wagner, Mozart and Beethoven. The concert will feature international pianist John Lill.

The series will continue on February 4 next year with a concert by the Russian State Philharmonic Orchestra and world-famous British cellist Julian Lloyd-Webber.

The final concert will take place on March 15 and will feature the Berlin Symphony Orchestra with violinist Ernst Kovacic.

SeaChange arts group director Joe Mackintosh described the securing of the series as a “major coup for the town” and said it stemmed from the success of last year's visit by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.

He said: “During the 1960s and 1970s there were frequent concerts by world-class orchestras at the Hippodrome from the London Philharmonic Orchestra to the Brno Philharmonic Orchestra from Czechoslovakia. We are absolutely thrilled to have put the Hippodrome back at the forefront of regional orchestral venues.”

He said they wanted as wide a range of people to come to the concerts as possible. Ticket pricing was highly competitive for concerts of such calibre - including a limited number of first come first serve tickets at only £10.
