What makes an orchestra like HCO tick? Fundamentally, it is the deep desire of a dedicated group of musicians to enjoy, together, something profoundly important to them and to share this experience with the wider community. It has already built a loyal following and has played a wide variety of music in different styles and genres, often collaborating with guest instrumentalists and singers, and receiving comments such as “wonderful”, “the best concert I’ve heard in St.Mary’s” (Concertos by Candlelight) and “magnificent evening”, “We’re so lucky to have such talented musicians in our lovely town!” (Jazz, Song and Strings.)
The final concert this season will take place in St. Mary’s Church, Hitchin on July 13th and is a “Festival of English Music”. It will include, among other works, Vaughan Williams’ Fantasia on a theme by Thomas Tallis, Elgar’s beautiful Serenade for Strings and the Malcolm Arnold first Flute concerto in which we look forward to working with Emma Halnan, winner of the BBC Young Musician Woodwind category, 2010.
