Hitchin Chamber Orchestra - Festival of English Music

Hitchin Chamber Orchestra - Festival of English Music

The final concert this season is a "Festival of English Music". There will be the trademark mix of familiar and unfamiliar pieces to listen to and it is hoped to introduce some real gems, taking the audience through a wide spectrum of sound and emotion. Works to be performed include, among others, Vaughan Williams’ "Fantasia on a theme by Thomas Tallis", Elgar’s beautiful "Serenade for Strings" and the Malcolm Arnold "Flute concerto, No.1" with soloist Emma Halnan, winner of the BBC Young Musician Woodwind category, 2010. The orchestra is also delighted to announce that it will be giving a World Premiere of an arrangement for string orchestra of Herbert Howells' "Master Tallis's Testament". Originally composed for organ, this arrangement has been made by the conductor for the evening, Rufus Frowde.
