Event description

Description

Come and join the Banbury Chamber Orchestra as it performs May Masterworks!

On Sunday 20 May the BCO will perform pieces from the classic 19th-century repertoire.

  • Mendelssohn – ‘Hebrides’ Overture
  • Saint-Saëns – Suite Op. 49

  • Beethoven – Symphony No. 8

Mendelssohn’s evocative ‘Hebrides’ overture describes the composer’s boat trip to Fingal’s Cave on the Isle of Staffa, with its unusual acoustics and the surrounding sea and wildlife. Saint-Saëns’ Orchestral Suite Op. 49 has five short movements, based loosely upon baroque dance forms. Beethoven’s witty and dynamic Eighth Symphony is a masterpiece dating from 1812, with its second movement allegedly being a parody of a musical metronome.

Tickets are £10 and 18s and under remain FREE!
