This year Nailsea Concert Orchestra will be presenting a New World Concert series, taking us through spring, summer and finally autumn/winter with a sumptuous mix of classics from Mendelssohn and Copeland, Bernstein to Gershwin and to a finale of Mozart and Dvorak to name just a few.
The first in the orchestra’s series, ‘Appalachian Spring’, will take place on Saturday 30th March 2019 at St Francis of Assisi Church in Nailsea at 7:30pm.
There will also be an open rehearsal on the day between 2pm and 3.30pm, a perfect opportunity for parents to come along at no cost with their children and introduce them to the wonderful sounds of an orchestra in a relaxed, friendly atmosphere.
There will also be a Pre-concert talk at 18:45 for anyone interested in the history of the music, this will be given by our conductor Ben England,
The programme will include Mendelssohn’s ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’, local composer Eric Wetherell’s Bristol Quay Suite, Debussy’s ‘Prélude à l’Après-midi d’un Faune’ and finally Aaron Copland’s wonderful ‘Appalachian Spring’, written and premiered 75 years ago.
