On Saturday 20 January 2024, Domingo Hindoyan will conduct the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra in Beethoven's Symphony No. 5 as part of the orchestra's concert at the Forum Theatre, Barrow in Furness. The concert is the opening event in a three-year partnership between the orchestra and Barrow-in-Furness. In collaboration with Westmorland & Furness Council, Cumbria Music Education Hub and the cultural, learning and community partners across Barrow, the project will produce a series of concerts, community events, music-making projects and educational activities, giving more people the opportunity to enjoy live music.

There will be the offer of visits and inspirational performances to every primary school in Barrow, co-designed creative residencies with secondary schools, supporting young people as music creators.  In addition, Cumbria Music Education Hub and Liverpool Philharmonic will work collaboratively to embed a singing culture in all primary schools and to boost group singing for children and young people across the town.

Other events coming up include By the sea (26/3/2024), a dementia-friendly concert, and Party Time (27/3/2024) for the under 5s from members of the orchestra at Barrow Library. The strings of the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra return on 7 June 2024 for Four Seasons of Buenos Aires ­at the Town Hall lead by violinist and Liverpool Philharmonic Artist in Residence Simone Lamsma. The orchestra will be performing at Saint Mary's Church on 21 June, and at the Forum Theatre on 30 June.
