What the World Needs Now... Celebrating The Music Of Burt Bacharach at the Ulster Hall, Belfast on 14 October 2023!


Burt Bacharach was one of the most prolific songwriters, composers and record producers of all time and his passing in February 2023 was a huge loss to the music industry.

Widely regarded as one of the most important and influential figures of 20th Century popular music, he composed hundreds of pop songs, achieving chart successes with artists such as Dionne Warwick, Cilla Black, Tom Jones, Dusty Springfield, The Carpenters and many others.

He composed extensively for the big screen for films such as Buch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid and Austin Powers, as well as the Broadway stage, and was the recipient of three Academy and seven Grammy Awards.

With compelling symphonic orchestrations and a quartet of star vocalists, Burt Bacharach hits include I Say A Little Prayer, Anyone Who Had A Heart, Close To You, Raindrops Keep Fallin’ On My Head, Walk On By, Alfie and more.
