Out of this World!

Sunday, 7th March sees the Royal Liverpool Philarmonic Orchestra perform an event titled Out of This World – an afternoon of music from popular sci-fi universes such as Doctor Who!

With music from the series as well as Star Wars and an orchestral tribute to Star Trek, the 1969 moon landing is also remembered with music from Holst’s Planets Suite.

Alasdair Malloy runs the RLPO’s  Schools Concerts.

“There’s no doubt the RLPO plays to more children than any other orchestra in the UK, if not Europe.

“For me I think a successful family concert should have all the same things as a successful family day out. Like a theme park for example – the moment you wake up the children are excited.

“Then the event itself should have all these elements of excitement and surprise and discovery.”

Speaking as a lover of classical music, this is a great way to tune a younger generation into the beauty of the orchestral sound.

Out of This World begins at 2.30pm on Sunday, 7th March with tickets £5 for children and £7-12 for adults. For more information contact the Philarmonic Hall on 0151 709 3789.
