2022 programme announced

We are thrilled to announce our programme for 2022 – which also celebrates Justus Rozemond’s 10th anniversary as Music Director of our orchestra. Justus will feature as clarinet soloist in Mozart’s beautiful Clarinet Concerto. Other highlights will include the Kabelevsky Cello Concerto with its glorious, soaring melodies featuring soloist Lev Sivkov; and the romantic Strauss Oboe Concerto with soloist Robert Orr. The Family Concert will return this year with Prokoviev’s much-loved Peter and the Wolf. Plenty to look forward to so we hope to see you at our concerts this year!
