Newsletter - May 2015

The summer is fast approaching and the orchestra has been enjoying rehearsing our programme for the concert on July 12th. We are especially looking forward to playing with guitarist Sam Brown, who is just completing his final year at the Royal College of Music, and about to embark on his professional career. Remember you saw him first with the Chichester Symphony Orchestra!

Our Spring Concert was hailed as a great success, especially Sibelius’ great 5th Symphony, which is a complex work for an amateur orchestra to attempt, and which brought many very favourable comments from members of the audience.

Talking of audience, we were concerned that changing the concert day and venue might result in a loss of audience, and although numbers were slightly down, the applause seemed louder. The Chapel is a very attractive building, and made for a more intimate performance space. If you didn’t manage to get to the University Chapel for the last concert, our July concert will give you one last opportunity to experience it. Please see below for our 2015/2016 concert season dates and venues.
