BSO Benevolent Fund Concert

BSO Benevolent Fund Concert


Join us in celebrating the 60th year of the OBF with a special concert featuring works by Tchaikovsky, Prokofiev and Beethoven. This year we welcome best-selling author, Philip Pullman who will be narrating Peter and the Wolf.

Francesca da Rimini tells a tragic love story and Tchaikovsky captures the turbulence of politics and love through his symphonic poem of the same name. As one of the most frequently performed works in the classical repertoire, Peter and the Wolf  uses various instruments of the orchestra to denote an animal from the story and has proven to entice audiences young and old into listening to classical music. Although shorter than his other great symphonies, Beethoven's Symphony No.8  uses unique harmony to grab the audience's attention, he leaves you with unanswered questions and a hunger to know more.

The role of the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra Benevolent Fund is to provide financial assistance to members of the BSO who have developed a medical condition or an injury that impairs their ability to perform their duties, or threatens to prematurely end their playing careers. Income for the Fund is raised from our annual concert for which the musicians, ancillary staff, conductors and soloists all donate their services, and also from donations and bequests.

The vast majority of members have never needed to request assistance from the OBF, but the Fund has provided an important safety net for the members that have fallen on difficult times, and remains integral to the efficient running of the BSO.
