Published at 10:13, Thursday, 31 January 2013
A BUSY February at Carlisle’s Sands Centre starts tomorrow (Friday) with legendary group The Drifters.
Now in their 60th year, The Drifters have enjoyed massive success on both sides of the Atlantic and across the world, with over 114 million album sales and 214 singles sales and a vast catalogue of hits.
On the road as part of their Diamond Dynasty Tour, the current line-up features Pierre Herelle, Michael Williams, Ryan King and Carlton Powell.
They will be performing a mix of classic hits and new material to celebrate the group’s timeless appeal.
Up next on Sunday night is dancer Brendan Cole, who is set to dazzle with his Licence To Thrill show.
Host Brendan – one of the most charismatic choreographers and performers on Strictly Come Dancing – will be joined by a cast of 20 musicians and dancers to take the audience on a journey of music and dance, from ballroom magic to Latin excitement.
On Saturday, February 16, The Sands’ International Orchestral Series continues with the Polish National Radio Symphony Orchestra.
The program features masterpieces by Bernstein, Lutoslawski, Beethoven and Schubert, conducted by Jacek Kaspszyk with soloist Mikhail Rudy on piano.
The orchestra has recorded more than 200 CDs for Polish and foreign labels and has been honoured with numerous awards for its phonographic achievements.
An international ambassador for Polish culture, the orchestra has collaborated with some of the greatest 20th century Polish composers, Lutoslawski, Gorecki and Penderecki.
And the month of February is rounded off with the return to Carlisle of the critically-acclaimed Blood Brothers.
West End star and multi-platinum selling artist Marti Pellow, of Wet Wet Wet fame, will take on the role of Narrator in the smash hit musical.
Written by Willy Russell, Blood Brothers tells the captivating and moving tale of twins who, separated at birth, grow up on opposite sides of the tracks, only to meet again with fateful consequences.
The superb score includes Bright New Day, Marilyn Monroe and the emotional Tell Me It’s Not True.
It runs from February 18 to 23, with matinee and evening performances.
Tickets for all of the shows are available from 01228 633766 or at www.thesandscentre.co.uk.
