LCO Spring Concert at AGGS

LCO Spring Concert 3pm 25th March 2018 with Robert Chasey

Conductor Bob ChaseyThe Lancashire Chamber Orchestra would like to extend a very warm invitation to you to come to our next concert on Sunday 25th March 2018, at 3:00pm, at Altrincham Girls’ Grammar School, Cavendish Road, Bowdon, WA14 2NL.

We are delighted to welcome back the inimitable Mr Robert Chasey for our 2018 concert series. Bob first took up his baton with the LCO back in the 1980s and we are thrilled that he has agreed to put us through our paces again in this gorgeous programme of Spring music.

The programme:

We begin our concert with the charmingly beautiful and fresh Romance for Strings, by the British composer, Gerald Finzi.

We are then joined by our first-rate wind, brass and percussion team for a performance of Siegfried Idyll by Richard Wagner. Siegfried was written as a birthday present from Wagner to his wife, Cosima, to celebrate the birth of their son.

We conclude our concert with the effervescent and tuneful Symphony No. 3 by Franz Schubert.

 

During the interval, you will be treated to delicious home-made cakes and refreshments!

We do hope you will join us for a wonderful concert and social event.

Tickets are available from the Contact form on the Concerts page of the LCO website: http://www.lancashirechamber.co.uk/concerts/ or from 0161 980 4275, or on the door. Early reservations are recommended to secure your seat.

Lancashire Chamber Orchestra Concert

LCO-22ndNovember2015Making a most welcome return to conduct and direct the orchestra from the harpsichord is JUSTIN DOYLE from Opera North, formerly director of the Manchester Chamber Choir and now too working with the BBC Singers. We are very privileged –and fortunate-to have as our soloist for this concert , the distinguished soprano Bibi Heal who has already established an outstanding reputation nationally and internationally on the opera stage, in oratorio and in a extremely diverse variety of other musical genres. The first half of the concert is a “Handelfest” with extracts from some of Handel’s many operas. The second half will include some rarely heard Haydn works including an early symphony and Bibi Heal will join the orchestra in one of Mozart’s finest works for the solo voice the concert aria “Ah lo previdi” which the composer wrote especially for one of the greatest singers of his day.

A true musical treat in store for all.
