Sefton Park, a LIMF Class Act
SEFTON PARK-CLASSIC FM – LIVERPOOL INTERNATIONAL MUSIC FESTIVAL
Well it’s Friday 23rd August, and all the anticipation of watching the amazing transformation of one of my favourite parks, Liverpool Sefton Park was indeed worth the wait.
Classic FM hosted the performance of the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra, along with our very own Sense of Sound group, was such an enjoyable and thoroughly entertaining evening for me; and I suspect the many thousands of people who came out to support this opening event.
Liverpool Culture Company-Liverpool City Council, along with their many high-profile sponsors and partners represented at the VIP Launch Event of this first Liverpool International Music Festival, must have been delighted with such an enthusiastic and diverse crowd throughout the evening proceedings.
Personally, just watching the Chief Conductor Mr Vasily Petrenko getting into the grove of his varied musical offerings, along with his fellow accomplished musicians was a joy to behold.
Copious amount of media coverage was in evidence on Friday, and what a coupe for Liverpool to be hosting such a prestigious event within such historical green surroundings. A spectacular firework display rounded off a most enjoyable evening.
Well done to all concerned, and a massive thank you (Ms Linda Conroy) to the many creative and dynamic visionaries, who continue to embrace and celebrate our rich and diverse musical heritage, beyond the traditional Mathew Street Festival.
