Wymondham Symphony Orchestra Spring Concert @ Wymondham Abbey
Mar 21 @ 19:30
Wymondham Symphony Orchestra Spring Concert
 
Saturday March 21st,  Wymondham Abbey at 7.30pm.
 
 ‘Classical Giants.  Beethoven and Brahms’
 
Not one but two brilliant soloists feature in Brahms’ last orchestral work. Another of this great concerto’s attraction is its ‘vast and sweeping humour’ (Tovey). Either side of this we celebrate the 250th Anniversary of Beethoven’s birth with two popular works from Beethoven’s middle period: his powerful and expressive overture ‘Egmont’ to the incidental music to Goethe’s play, and his majestic Symphony No 3, originally dedicated to Napoleon Bonaparte, but dramatically changed to the ‘Heroic’ after the Frenchman declared himself emperor. 
 
or from Paul Chambers  01379-642909
or from Puffs Toy Shop Wymondham.
£12 advance booking. £14 on the door
Friends £10. Children under 18 free.

Wymondham Symphony Orchestra Anniversaries Concert @ Wymondham Abbey
Jul 4 @ 19:30

Wymondham Symphony Orchestra Anniversaries Concert

Saturday 4 July 2020
at Wymondham Abbey

Fanfare for the Common Man – Copland
Masquerade Suite – Khachaturian
Rhapsody in Blue – Gershwin, with soloist Sohyun Park
Symphony No. 9 (From the New World) – Dvorak

This concert marks two significant local anniversaries: 25 years of Wymondham Music Festival and 35 years of Wymondham Symphony Orchestra. On America’s Independence Day, what better way to celebrate than with Rhapsody in Blue fusing jazz with a piano concerto, and The New World Symphony in which Dvorak recalls the sounds and culture he encountered on visits to the USA.

Start time – 19:30
Ticket prices:- £14 (adult, bought on the door), £12 (adult, bought in advance), £10 (Friends), Free (Under 18)
