About the event

An evening of classical music and fireworks – don’t forget your picnic!

Derby's much-loved concert returns to Darley Park after a year’s break.

Come along and be part of one of the UK’s biggest outdoor classical concerts, in the stunning natural amphitheatre that is Darley Park. This year's programme has links to Derby's 40th year as a City with performances of famous cricket theme Soul Limbo and Youth of Britain March. The City’s industrial heritage will also be celebrated with Funiculi Funicula, Runaway Train and Come Fly with Me, whilst Derby County Football Club is also acknowledged with a performance of Steve Bloomer’s Watching.

This year’s show also features popular pieces from past concerts that will send a shiver up your spine such as Thunderbirds, music from Star Wars and the fantastic Bohemian Rhapsody. The programme also features three selections made by a public vote: Goodwin: 633 Squadron (2006), Prokofiev: Montagues and Capulets from Romeo and Juliet (2015) and Steiner: Lara’s Theme - Gone with the Wind (2008).

Sinfonia Viva have confirmed the concert Conductor will be James Holmes along with baritone, Grant Doyle as Soloist, both of whom are regulars at the concert.
