Dvořák, Mendelssohn, and Elgar

Buy tickets


  • Dvořák - Concert Overture 'In nature's realm'
  • Mendelssohn - Violin Concerto in E minor
  • Elgar - Symphony No.1

Violin: David Greed
Conductor: Simon Wright
Leader: Fiona Love

The first concert in this season will see us welcome back an old friend of the orchestra, David Greed; he will play the ever-popular violin concerto of Mendelssohn. It's been a while since we played any of Elgar's symphonies, so we shall rectify this with a performance of his first. And to start proceedings, one of Dvořák's many concert overtures.


We will always endeavour to perform the concert as shown; however, should circumstances require, the orchestra reserves the right to amend the concert date, timing, concert programme, soloist and ticket pricing without prior notice.
