This is a reminder that the first concert of our 2018-19 Centenary season is on Saturday 10th November at Langley Park Centre for the Performing Arts BR3 3BP.

Ravel’s jazzy and virtuosic Concerto for the Left Hand follows - commissioned by a pianist who lost an arm in the conflict. After the interval we present Elgar’s Second Sy ...Continue Reading

There are good seats still available including free seats for children in the circle slips, nearest the orchestra. Nielsen’s 3rd Symphony (the ‘Espansiva’) is light and joyous – not ‘typical’ Nielsen at all. Its famous slow movement, which Nielsen himself described as a ‘landscape Andante,’ uses offstage solo voices to marvellous effect. Vaug ...Continue Reading
