Classical music fans can enjoy coverage of the BBC's Big Concert at Swansea's London 2012 Live Site

On Thursday 21 June, the big screen in Swansea's Castle Square will host live coverage of The Big Concert from Stirling featuring the Simón Bolívar Symphony Orchestra and Gustavo Dudamel

PRLog - June 18, 2012 - Swansea’s London 2012 Live Site is to show a very special BBC concert this Thursday performed by one of the most exciting conductors and orchestras in the world.

Featuring the renowned Gustavo Dudamel and the Simón Bolívar Symphony Orchestra of Venezuela, The Big Concert will be broadcast live from the small village of Raploch in Stirling, in the shadow of Stirling Castle.

The Big Concert will be screened on the big screen in Castle Square on Thursday 21 June, from 7.00pm -10.30pm, and marks the start of the London 2012 Festival.  

As well as a full performance by The Simón Bolívar Symphony Orchestra, The Big Concert will also feature a special guest appearance by the children of Big Noise.  “Big Noise in a Wee Place”, a documentary about the project in Raploch, will be shown just before the concert.

Eileen Herlihy, Head of Entertainment and Events at BBC Scotland, said, "It is fantastic news for BBC Scotland to be covering this very special event. It promises to be an amazing night of great performance celebrating the work of Big Noise in Stirling and of course the start of the London 2012 Festival. It's great to be able to relay this event from the very heart of Scotland to the whole of the UK."

Frances Jenkins, Swansea Council’s Strategic Manager for Tourism, Marketing and Events said, “Castle Square is an unique, open air setting and the Big Concert provides a great opportunity for visitors to the city centre to enjoy another free music event in Swansea.”

“In addition to the Big Concert, we have an exciting and varied programme lined up for the summer including Wimbledon, Royal Opera House Ballet, family films and of course the Olympic and Paralympic Games.”  

Free deckchairs are available to make the experience more comfortable and concert goers are also encouraged to bring a picnic to really make the most of the evening.
