The premiere performance of Liverpool Wondrous Place, sponsored by the University showed off the musical diversity that makes Liverpool such a ‘wondrous place’.
Conducted by Honorary Graduate Vasily Petrenko, the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra performed a Beatles medley as well as the music of Tchaikovsky and Benjamin Britten.
In addition, popular bands The Scaffold and OMD treated the audience to some of their greatest hits and the Pagoda Chinese Youth Orchestra performed a number of well known and not so well known tunes.
As the only UK city at the World Expo 2010 in Shanghai, RLPO and the other bands have been invited to perform the same concert in the city’s dedicated Pavilion and will also give other performances in Shanghai and Beijing.
