Edinburgh Police Choir is proud to be part of this fantastic charity concert in the Royal Albert Hall

The British Police Symphony Orchestra is celebrating its 30th Anniversary with a Charity Gala Concert at the Royal Albert Hall on 11th May. This concert will feature over 670 performers, drawn from the police service throughout the United Kingdom, including massed choirs, pipe-bands and fanfare brass.

We are sooo excited to be part of this - and looking forward to traveling to London!

The programme of music guarantees something for everyone, especially fans of James Bond and includes works by Sibelius, Quincy Jones, Wagner and Rick Wakeman. Over 5,000 blue flashing lights will fill the hall during his “Dance of a Thousand Lights” whilst our favourite television crime fighters will be easily identified by their themes in the world premiere of a specially commissioned suite, “A Musical Salute”.  Mahler’s powerful finale to Symphony of a Thousand will provide a most fitting climax to this momentous celebration!

Supporting - COPS
Care of Police Survivors - COPS is a charity dedicated to helping the families of police officers who have lost their lives on duty, to rebuild their lives. It aims to ensure that survivors have the help they need to cope with such a tragedy, and that they remain part of the police family.

Supporting - Youth Music
Youth Music is a national charity investing in music-making projects that help children and young people develop personally and socially as well as musically. Projects break down barriers to musicmaking that children and young people face because of who they are, where they live, or what they’re going through.
