Event Information

As is tradition for the Dinas Powys Music Festival, the Cardiff Palm Court Orchestra will conclude the bigger-than-ever festival. Palm Court Orchestra, a fifteen-piece ensemble, will perform a repertoire based on light music, popular classics, radio themes and selections from operettas and stage musicals.

Favourites in the orchestra’s programmes include the music of Gilbert & Sullivan, Eric Coates, Leroy Anderson, Albert Ketelbey, George Gershwin and Ivor Novello.

Palm Court Orchestra first performed in the Dinas Powys Festival in 2011 and is delighted to be returning to the Festival to perform the closing concert for the eighth successive year.

Michael Bell has been the conductor of Cardiff Philharmonic Orchestra since the orchestra was formed 37 years ago in 1982. Since 2010, Michael has been conductor of the Brecknock Sinfonia in its concert series at Brecon Cathedral, and in June 2017 conducted the Abergavenny Symphony Orchestra. The Cardiff Palm Court Orchestra allows Michael the chance to indulge in his love of light music.

Tea and Cake will be served during the interval.
