Easter Youth and Second Orchestra – Update

27 March 2015.

Unfortunately, we have had fewer members applying to take part than expected across both the Second Orchestra and Youth Orchestra and so, following consultation with our conductors, we are making some changes.

I am pleased to say that we have decided to invite the Second Orchestra members who have applied, to join the Youth Orchestra players for this Easter in order to ensure everyone can enjoy the experience of playing some great music in a large orchestra.

The course and concert programme will therefore be as follows:
Egmont Overture Op. 84, Beethoven
Variations on Haydn ‘St Anthony Chorale’, Brahms
Symphony No. 2 in D Op. 43, Sibelius

The course and concert will be conducted jointly by Michael Rose and James Dickinson. The course rehearsal and concert schedule and venues will be unaffected.

This will be an exciting and challenging course, with students from Arezzo joining us too, so we look forward to seeing you there.

Many thanks for your support and understanding.
