Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra musicians get a taste of Naval Life at Royal Naval Air Station Culdrose on the eve of their spectacular Dark Sun concert.

They have been given the opportunity to see for themselves what goes on at the Royal Navy’s West Cornwall Air Station on the eve of a special community mass ensemble performance in one of the base’s huge aircraft hangar

The team of would-be naval candidates is part of the BSO Cornwall Residency’s 60-strong professional musicians, who are delivering an extensive music-making programme to the region from Tuesday 21 – Saturday 25 April 2015.

“They have been invited to take part in one of the navy’s training exercises on Friday, April 24, as the BSO and RNAS Culdrose are collaborating on the culminating event of the BSO Cornwall Residency 2015, with a spectacular mass community musical production taking place on Saturday 25 April in the presence of the Royal Navy’s Fleet Air Arm at RNAS Culdrose” said Lisa Tregale, BSO Head of Participation.

The event is part of the orchestra’s most extensive programme yet as they cover 20 locations in the Cornwall region, delivering over 22 school and community visits to inspire new communities.
