Coming Events

2022 Programme

Our April concert features guest conductor Michael Joel and a surprise soloist in Chopin’s romantic Piano Concerto No.2. 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 with Prokoviev’s much-loved Peter and the Wolf. Plenty to look forward to so we hope to see you at our concerts in 2022!
