TV dancing stars set for a waltz with the Ulster Orchestra

The Ulster Orchestra has announced it is to play a Gala Viennese Evening in the Waterfront Hall early next year.

The orchestra will be performing music by Johann Strauss and other well-known composers, while Camilla Dallerup and Ian Waite from the BBC's Strictly Come Dancing show will also be on stage. They danced at previous Strauss gala concerts in the Waterfront to popular acclaim.

The event will be sponsored by Barclay's Bank.

The orchestra's chief executive, David Byers, said: "We are thrilled to have Barclay's Bank on board, and I hope that this is the beginning of a fruitful partnership. The support of the business community is really important to us."

The Ulster Orchestra began its new season this month when it played to a capacity audience in St Anne's Cathedral under the direction of Kenneth Montgomery, the first Ulsterman to hold this prestigious post.

He conducted the orchestra again last week where the main piece was the Bruckner Fifth Symphony.
