On Thursday 22nd August at 7pm, the string players of Orchestra of the City will be venturing South of the river to St Giles’!
Conducted by Chris Hopkins, join us for Elgar’s poignant Elegy, Bartok’s meticulous Divertimento of 1939 in three parts and Dvořák’s ever-popular Serenade for Strings.
The orchestra is recognised as one of London’s leading non-professional orchestras. Formed in 2003, the orchestra represents the city and members include nurses, teachers, barristers, doctors, bankers, researchers, scientists, arts administrators, recording engineers and a raft of other professionals. With a very high standard of musicianship, the orchestra is known for its friendly and sociable atmosphere and for breaking down barriers between the orchestra and the audience. The orchestra regularly gives high quality performances at prestigious venues with soloists ranging from the up-and-coming youngsters to some of the most established and eminent musicians of today.
Entry is free (donations welcome) and a bar will be available.
