Charnwood Orchestra Concert

It is a highlight of Christmas for many music lovers when Charnwood Orchestra brings Vienna to Humphrey Perkins Community Centre in January.

Last year the orchestra experimented by enriching the feast of Viennese waltzes, polkas and marches with other popular pieces from the rest of Europe to start the concert – just as happens in Vienna on New Year’s Eve. The experiment was very well received and will be repeated. The first half of the concert will include Harold’s rousing Zampa overture, Bizet’s Carmen Suite, Dvorak’s Slavonic Dance No 8, Svensden’s Violin Romance with conductor Nic Fallowfield playing solo violin and the Waltz from Swan Lake by Tchaikovsky. In the second half, Humphrey Perkins’ hall fills with the music of the Strauss family, some new to Barrow, some very familiar indeed. Obviously we will include the Blue Danube, the Radetsky Waltz and Thunder and Lightning Polka.

The tickets cost £15, £13 (concessions) and £3 (accompanied children under 16) and can be bought from The Paper Shop and by Paypal from www.charnwoodorchestra.org.uk The concert starts at 7.00pm and don’t be late because we will be giving you a free glass of bubbly or juice to get you into the mood.
