Next Concert

Next Concert... The Orchestra has restarted rehearsals after its Summer break in preparation for the first concert of the 22/23 season, an evening of European classics on Saturday 5th November, in St Mary's Church, Nottingham. The evening will start with selected movements from Grieg's ever popular Peer Gynt Suite, followed by the equally loved Adagio from the ballet Spartacus by Khachaturian, theme tune of the 1970s BBC series The Onedin Line. The first half will finish with virtuoso Callum Smart performing arguably Alexander Glazunov's most popular work, his violin concerto in A minor. “Here full-blooded lyricism meets virtuoso delirious high spirits.” said BBC Music Magazine of the piece. After the interval the Orchestra will play Borodin's magnificent second symphony. For full details and ticket information see the Next Concert page
