Didcot Concert Orchestra

An afternoon of classical music with Didcot's brand new and very own symphony orchestra.

Come and hear Didcot's brand new full symphony orchestra returning for its second concert of music from the late Romantic era.

First hear a rarely performed tuneful gem - the Ballade in A minor - by Croydon composer Samuel Coleridge-Taylor, composed at the suggestion of Elgar, and then enjoy Elgar's immortal and ever-popular Cello Concerto - practically his last work, and full of mourning for a lost world after the first world war.

Soloist Jacqueline Johnson then treats us to an orchestration by world-famous cellist Lynn Harrell of Victor Herbert's short piano piece Yesterthoughts, and we end the concert with Dvorak's happy and tuneful Sixth Symphony, full of colourful orchestration and tunes you'll go home humming.

Conductor: Geoff Bushell

Leader: Kate Bailey
