This year’s repertoire contains a variety of full scale orchestral works including as our symphonies the iconic Fifth by Beethoven and Britten’s (far from!) Simple Symphony, the Offenbach overture for Orpheus in the Underworld a Borodin tone poem that takes us to the Steppes of Central Asia, and a number of works by English composers including Britten’s arrangement of the Rossini Soirees Musicales and folk-song celebrations in Gustav Holst’s Somerset Rhapsody, Roger Quliter’s English Dances and a Woodbridge Suite written for us by past President Imogen Holst
The autumn’s work culminated in a December performance for our friends of Beethoven’s Fifth. Those who came to listen enjoyed an unusual opportunity to observe an orchestra and its players at close quarters. Next opportunity ?? See below \/
