Palm Court Light Orchestra

PCO Orchestra

Broadway & Beyond

Kiiri Michelson, mezzo soprano

This is a concert that reminds us of the historic significance of New York’s Broadway Theatres and London’s West End. From the earliest times of European operetta, the music hall, and vaudeville through to the creation of the unique art form called Musical Theatre, these two world cities have led the way. Expect to hear selections from Richard Rodgers South Pacific, Burton Lane’s Finian’s Rainbow, Ivor Novello’s Perchance to Dream and Robert B. Sherman’s Mary Poppins.

Charles Job Conductor's Corner

 Welcome to the 2023/2024 Season of the Palm Court Light Orchestra. This is our 36th season of presenting light orchestral music in the palm court style. We are please that we are able to present a full season of music after the worst of Covid 19. In October we present Palm Court Souvenirs with baritone Steven Price in parlour songs from the Victorian and Edwardian Ages including The Road to Mandalay and The Holy City . Our February, 2024 concert A Valentine for You sees the debut performance of soprano Lindsay Kolke in our usual celebration of romance and world peace, Finally in April, 2024 our concert Broadway & Beyond sees the return of mezzo soprano Kiiri Michelsen with songs from both sides of the Atlantic.

Another fine season from the Palm Court Light Orchestra

What is Palm Court Music?

Palm Court music brings forth images of potted palms, gracious grand hotels and ballroom dancers in elegant evening dress. The Palm Court Light Orchestra typically plays popular light classics from the early 1900s as well as marches, ragtime, and musical gems from the early days of cinema, between the two world wars. It is best described as light-hearted music that sends you home smiling!
