The Bell Lawrie Festival Concert with Bryn Terfel and The Scottish Chamber Orchestra concluded the 36th Perth Festival last night. The concert was undoubtably the highlight of this year's Festival. Bryn Terfel demonstated that he is indeed a world-class performer. His performance must be one of the highlights of the Festival's 36 year history. The organisers were thrilled to hear that he would love to return to the festival and the stunning Perth Concert Hall.
This Festival has been a record breaking event with a 13% increase in ticket sales on last year, building on the successes of recent years. Sell-out shows have included Bryn Terfel, Eugene Onegin, The Sixteen, Sandi Toksvig with Bonnie Langford and the late night jazz show with Fraser Campbell. The show with the biggest audience was The Magic Numbers where the capacity of the Perth Concert Hall was increased by removing the seats downstairs to create a standing event.
The key to the success of the Festival is the support of 50 sponsors ranging from The Gannochy Trust, Bell Lawrie and Perth and Kinross Council to many trusts and local businesses. Their support allows us to invite the best artists to Perth.
