The orchestra performs regularly in public several times a year.
Our most recent concert on 2nd November 2019 was a wonderful vibrant programme inspired by the season. Danse Macabre (Saint-Saëns) made a dramatic introduction, followed by "Night on Bald Mountain" (Mussorgsky) and the 2nd movement of Beethoven's 7th. In the second half, "Marche Funèbre D'une Marionette" (Gounod) was a hit, and we finished with a selection from “La Boutique Fantasque” (Rossini / Respighi). This was our second concert with our new Musical Director, Danusia Adamska, and was received enthusiastically by our largest ever audience.
Her debut in July was an exciting journey from the Hebrides (Mendelssohn) through Romania (Bartok) and former Czecheslovakia (Dvorak) back to London (Haydn Symphony 104).
Our next concert is planned for Tuesday December 10th at 8pm in St. Mildred's Church CR0 7EB (near Addiscombe tram stop). Entry £10 (adults), £8 (concessions) and free for under 16s. The programme will have a seasonal theme and is planned to include:
"A Christmas Festival" - Leroy Anderson
"Toy Symphony" by L.Mozart
Excerpts from "The Nutcracker" - Tchaikovsky
