Music On The Waterfront 2012

Music On The Waterfront 2012

Now in its fourth year the On the Waterfront festival is set to bring the Pier Head to life with not one, but two free music concerts next month.

The event – this year called Music on the Waterfront – takes place on Friday 20 and Saturday 21 July and will be kicked off in orchestral style by the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra. With popular conductor John Wilson at the helm, the concert will be a night of popular classics and music from the silver screen, including music and songs from the likes of Carousel, Annie Get Your Gun, Funny Girl and The Sound of Music.

The orchestra will be joined by critically acclaimed soloist, Broadway star, Kim Criswell, who will sing songs from the golden age of the Hollywood musicals including There’s No Business Like Show Business and Stormy Weather.

And, as 2012 marks 50 years since The Beatles came together, the symphonic performance will include a celebration of some of the Fab Four’s hits.

The Pier Head party continues on the Saturday as the city welcomes eight stellar music acts – the full line up will be revealed in coming weeks.
