Darley Park Concert Fireworks

Classic FM’s More Music Breakfast presenter Tim Lihoreau is hosting one of the biggest classical concerts of the summer.

This summer, Derby LIVE’s Darley Park Concert is returning to the stunning natural amphitheatre of Darley Park. To celebrate Classic FM’s 25th birthday and Derby’s 40th birthday as a city, Tim Lihoreau is hosting the event.

The wonderful Sinfonia Viva orchestra will perform Soul Limbo and Youth of Britain March to celebrate Derby’s 40th year as a city, while the city’s industrial heritage will be awakened with performances of Funiculi Funicula, Runaway Train and Come Fly with Me.

Expect a revival of old favourites – the Sinfonia Viva will be playing ‘Thunderbirds’, music from Star Wars and the fantastic ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’. They will even play music chosen by a public vote: Goodwin: 633 Squadron (2006), Prokofiev: Montagues and Capulets from Romeo and Juliet (2015) and Steiner: Tara’s Theme - Gone with the Wind (2008). Plus, there’ll be a firework display to end the night!
