We finish our 41st season with what would have been the closing concert in our 40th season back in May 2020 – but which had to be cancelled because of the pandemic lockdown.  This is a wonderful programme which we really had to perform for you!  The Dohnányi Variations is one of those rare pieces that will make you laugh out loud – and the Danzón (made famous by the Simón Bolivar Youth Orchestra of Venezuela) will make you want to get up and dance in the aisles.

Martin Roscoe is a superlative pianoist of international renown; he has performed with the orchestra on several occasions and it will be an absolute delight to welcome him back.

Please note that whilst we will endeavour to perform the concert as shown, the orchestra reserves the right to amend the date, programme, soloist and ticket pricing should circumstances require.
