Virtue Orchestra (Schlechte-Bond/Ives/Beethoven)
///// music for spring //////
VirtueOrchestra presents its first concert of 2017: a stunning set of positive and exciting orchestral music from the 19th, 20th and 21st centuries that are guaranteed to put a smile on your face as we celebrate the arrival of spring.
///// Featuring /////
Beethoven’s jolly and rustic Sixth Symphony (also known as the ‘Pastoral Symphony’): a dramatic evocation of the triumph of peaceful nature over earth-shattering thunder.
Charles Ives’ eerily atmospheric and existential ponderings in his mysterious 20th-century masterpiece, ‘The Unanswered Question’ .
The foot-tapping rhythms and merry parody-tunes of Warlock’s Capriol Suite for strings.
And also featuring a haunting new orchestral piece written by English composer Christopher Schlechte-Bond to begin VirtueOrchestra’s dynamic new music-making.
Tickets are £10 or £5 for students. Tickets can be bought on Eventbrite (link up above) or at the door.
