Finlandia with Hereford Youth Orchestra
7th May 2016 @ 19:30 - 21:00£5
We are asked to join the audience to support Hereford Youth Orchestra (under the aegis of the County music service, Encore Enterprises CIC), of which Richard is joint conductor with Hazel Davis. They are performing at St Peter’s, Bromyard, a week after our Elgar concert at the Cathedral, and the programme will conclude with Sibelius’s Finlandia; we will sing two verses of the familiar words at the relevant point during the work. No special dress code. We meet in the church at 6.20 to rehearse briefly – sadly, for those who do not live “on the spot”, this means a rather long break before the concert starts: NB the start time is 7.30 not 7.00 as originally indicated on this page but the 6.20 rehearsal time is unchanged.
Other works in the programme (not necessarily all movements, and not necessarily in this order) will comprise:
- Brahms’ Academic Festival Overture
- Handel’s Concerto Grosso in G Minor Op 6 no 6 (Emma Greenough and Tara Dudhill – violins, Alice Shaw – cello)
- Holst’s First Suite for Military Band in E flat
- Raymond Warren’s Gwent Carnival (2nd performance) (Hannah Allaway – harp)
- A Tribute to Henry Mancini
Please come along and enjoy this varied programme!
