Recognising the enjoyment people have when listening to light orchestral music, the Promenade Concert Orchestra was formed in 2007, by professional clarinettist, Howard Rogerson, to provide the opportunity for Morecambe and the Bay area to also enjoy such music. The Promenade Concert Orchestra has developed a highly acclaimed and successful series of concerts at the Platform in Morecambe and has subsequently taken programmes to places such as Grange-over-Sands, Settle, Ribble Valley, Chorley and Lancaster Grand Theatre.
