Bromley Symphony Orchestra is a large, friendly, successful amateur orchestra based in south London with a reputation for interesting concerts of almost professional standard. We welcome applications from new members, patrons and helpers.
Horovitz Concerto for Euphonium
Soloist Robbie Henderson
In our third concert, Horowitz’s virtuosic yet engaging Concerto for Euphonium (with rising star Robbie Henderson) is framed by two overtures: Nicholai’s jovial Merry Wives of Windsor and Mendelssohn’s irresistible Midsummer’s Night’s Dream. Bruckner’s shortest and perhaps most classical symphony completes the concert.
Korngold Violin Concerto
Soloist Callum Smart
Our final concert represents catnip for romantics: Respighi’s Fountains of Rome is followed by a ten- minute work by a finalist in our composers’ competition (Robert Ely). Afterwards, the prizewinning Callum Smart delivers Korngold’s rhapsodic violin concerto. What could possibly follow that, except for Dvořák’s “New World” Symphony?
Note: This is an additional concert to our regular seaon – more details nearer the time
