Description

The Wimbledon Symphony Orchestra’s annual highlight concert in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support, at St Paul’s Church, Inner Park Road, SW19 6DA on Saturday, 2nd March at 7.30pm.

WSO is delighted to support Macmillan Merton once again in a programme that opens with Suppé's Light Cavalry Overture, celebrating the bi-centenary of the composer's birth (1819). Audiences will doubtless recognise some of the famous tunes. We then feature our talented principal clarinettist Richard Stockall in Finzi's famous clarinet concerto, often heard on Classic FM. This is mellow and nostalgic music inspired by the English countryside with which Finzi had such an affinity. After enjoying delicious homemade canapés prepared by the Macmillan Merton committee we will return to the second half of the concert for Brahms's heroic 1st symphony, which is sometimes named 'Beethoven's Tenth' owing to the homage Brahms pays to Beethoven's Ninth Symphony with certain musical references. This is an evening not to be missed, in aid of the vital charity Macmillan that touches so many families.

Soloist: Richard Stockall

Conductor: Andrew Morley
