heme announced for Hannells Darley Park Concert as Classic FM come on board

The hugely successful Hannells Darley Park Concert will once again be staged in the picturesque setting of Darley Park. It is one the UK’s biggest outdoor classical concerts and takes place on Sunday 2 September. This year’s event will be supported by Hannells, Flint Bishop Solicitors, HUUB, Invictus Communications, Mortgage Advice Bureau, PKF Cooper Parry, Redrow Homes and Stratstone BMW Derby.

Derby LIVE is delighted to announce that Classic FM, the UK’s most popular classical music station with 5.6 million weekly listeners, will be the media partner for this year’s concert. Crowd favourites, Sinfonia Viva, the Orchestra of the East Midlands, who are supported by Rolls-Royce, will be the lead performers and at the concert.

Peter Helps, Chief Executive of Sinfonia Viva said: “Sinfonia Viva is thrilled to be back at Darley Park. Every year we look for a theme on which to hang the various programme ideas. With the centenary of the end of the First World War coming up in November it seemed right to find a way to mark this. We have gone for a programme to reflect hope, peace and reconciliation. There are lots of tunes and songs people will recognise in the programme. As ever we have had to whittle the list down from a large number of items. We hope everyone enjoys the selection!”
