For one night only, the British Police Symphony Orchestra’s Musical Director switches his baton for his cello.

Dr Richard Jenkinson, a member of the Dante String Quartet and previously the principal cellist of the CBSO, gets to face the audience to perform Elgar’s stunning Cello Concerto as the opener to the BPSO’s first ever concert in Ripon Cathedral.
With guest conductor Malcolm Webb quite literally picking up the baton, the award-winning BPSO provides the accompaniment to what is one of the most famous and loved pieces of English orchestral music, alongside ballet music from Holst’s comic opera The Perfect Fool and Elgar’s Cockaigne Overture. The evening finishes with the musical storytelling of Respighi’s magnificent Pines of Rome.
All the profits from the concert will support The Police Treatment Centres, a registered charity which provides first class rehabilitation centres in Harrogate and Auchterarder. These police-specific facilities deliver physical rehabilitation and psychological well-being support for conditions or injuries sustained on or off duty for members of 28 UK forces.
The award-winning British Police Symphony Orchestra is a registered charity, comprising serving and retired police officers, support staff and close members of the wider police family. All its concerts support charitable causes and, through performances and outreach projects, the BPSO engages, excites and enlightens audiences by providing opportunities to experience live music first hand.
