Next season’s planning is in full swing - the programme has been chosen (see Concert Season) - the soloists booked - and you are all in for quite a treat!
We are thrilled that Internationally famed guitarist Craig Ogden will be coming to play the delicious Concierto de Aranjuez by Rodrigo. This will be next May, when we will also play some fun pieces by Richard Strauss and Shostakovitch.
Next February, our concert falls on Valentine's Day - so of course we could not pass up that opportunity. The concert will feature various pieces associated with joys and travails of unrequited love! Joining us will some wonderful young talent - Rebecca Taylor (piano), CÚline Forrest (soprano) and Oliver Johnston (tenor) - who are making quite a name for themselves on the stage. CÚline has won her place through to finals of the Cardiff Singer of the World competition in 2015 representing Wales.
This coming October will see us continue our Sibelius journey with his second symphony, and we will also present one of his smaller tone poems The Swan of Tuonela. Also joining us will be a fabulous young Korean violin soloist So-Ock Kim to play the glorious and familiar Mendelssohn violin concerto.
Tickets will be available as usual from the Barbican box office - by phone on 0844 854 2757, or via their web site. You can collect tickets during box office opening hours which are 10:00am to 2:00pm on weekdays - or from 6:30pm on concert days.
