Symphony By The Sea Set to Shine Whatever the Weather
Spectators at this summer’s Symphony By The Sea at Lusty Glaze Beach in Newquay will be able to enjoy the classical concert come rain or shine thanks to a unique ‘tented village’ being planned for the event.
A series of shelters will be erected on the beach for the Last Night of the Proms style event on Sunday 26 July 2015, providing an all-weather solution for the spectacular outdoor concert.
Symphony by the Sea is set to be the highlight of a sizzling summer at Lusty Glaze as thousands of people of all ages flock to the beach to witness the Cornish Sinfonia Orchestra perform an evening of classical music against the backdrop of Cornwall’s stunning coastline.
Lusty Glaze Beach owner Tracey Griffiths: “This concert promises to be something truly special. A chance for friends and family, young and old, to gather for some inspirational music in an inspirational setting. We can’t wait.”
The event will be the most ambitious concert ever staged at Lusty Glaze Beach. The Cornish Sinfonia Orchestra consists of 37 musicians who will fill the cove with uplifting tunes and classical favourites, culminating in a choreographed firework display that will set the night sky alight.
To complement the scene, guests will be able to pre-order hampers of fine food and Champagne to enjoy during the concert. It is largely a seated event but guests are welcome to bring their own blankets and rugs to make themselves comfortable on the beach.
Inspired by the outdoor Last Night of the Proms, organisers hope the Symphony by the Sea will become an annual event bringing quality classical music to a new audience in a beach-side setting.
Tracey Griffiths added: “We are extremely excited and privileged to be hosting Cornwall’s premier orchestra for an evening of music and entertainment. This is all set to be a night to remember.”
