Spring Concert 2017

  • Leonora Overture No 3 - Ludwig van Beethoven
  • St Pauls Suite for strings - Gustav Holst
  • Suite in E flat for Wind and Brass - Gustav Holst
  • Scheherazade - Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov
     with Ceri Peterson, violin

WSO showcases the two halves of the orchestra in the suites by Gustav Holst, then puts them back together again in Rimsky-Korsakov’s most famous work Scheherazade. Based on One Thousand and One Nights, sometimes known as The Arabian Nights, it combines two features typical of Russian music and of Rimsky-Korsakov in particular: dazzling, colorful orchestration and a fascination of all things oriental.

  • Start time - 19:30
  • Ticket prices:- £12 (adult), £10 (Friends), £2 (children)

Wymondham Music Festival Concert

  • Overture Der Freischütz - Carl Maria von Weber
  • Cello Concerto in E minor - Edward Elgar
    with Andrew Harsley, cello (Norfolk young Musician of the Year 2016)
  • Symphony No.7 in D minor - Antonin Dvořák

In the first half of the 19th century, Weber's opera Der Freischütz was a runaway success, and, to this day, its overture is the composer’s most famous work. Equally famous is the Cello Concerto by Elgar. During World War I, Elgar was appalled by the suffering caused and composed very little. Then he poured his feelings into works which ranked among his finest, including the cello concerto. WSO is delighted to support young local talent by inviting Andrew Harsley to be the soloist. In 1884, the Philharmonic Society of London invited Dvořák to write a new symphony. Although his New World Symphony is the most popular, the 7th Symphony is arguably the greatest one.

  • Start time - 19:30
  • Ticket prices:- £12 (adult), £10 (Friends), £2 (children)
