Our final concert in this season will see us welcome a new soloist for the orchestra and for York, Annemarie Federle was a brass winner and finalist in the 2020 BBC Young Musician of the Year competition; she is currently Principal Horn for the amazing Aurora Orchestra and was recently appointed Principal Horn for the London Philharmonic Orchestra. It will be an absolute privilege for us to hear her play the wonderful Strauss concerto - which he wrote for his dad!

By way of introduction to the Strauss, we have the beautiful prelude to Hansel & Gretel by Humperdinck, followed by the rarely performed Bavarian Dances by Sir Edward Elgar.

For the second half, it will be a delight to perform one of Dvořák's other symphonies (other than the one that always gets played!); his seventh symphony is further example of what a superlative tunesmith he was, full of wonderful tunes and rhythms. A joyous conclusion to the season.

Please note that this concert is a Sunday matinee.


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.
