Based in London, the BBC Concert Orchestra is one of the UK’s most versatile ensembles. With around 50 players, it is the only one of five radio orchestras which is not a full-scale symphony orchestra.
Since its debut in 1952 it has been the house orchestra for BBC Radio 2’s Friday Night Is Music Night. It gives frequent broadcasts on BBC Radio 3 and is heard on such BBC soundtracks as Africa and The Paradise.
Keith Lockhart is the BBC CO’s Principal Conductor, Barry Wordsworth is the orchestra’s Conductor Laureate, and arranger and jazz trumpeter Guy Barker is currently Associate Composer, a position previously held by Radiohead guitarist Jonny Greenwood and the Art of Noise’s Anne Dudley.
Primarily the orchestra’s role is to produce live music for radio broadcast, and it also serves as the resident orchestra of the world’s longest running live music program, Friday Night is Music Night.
The Glenview Trust Enriching Life Series is a season long commitment by the Glenview Trust Company that supports Kentucky Center performances, as well as vital community outreach efforts.
