Warwickshire Symphony Orchestra tune up for spring

Rugby Editorial 23rd Feb, 2024   0

WARWICKSHIRE Symphony Orchestra are tuning up for spring.

They will perform music by Shostakovich, Smetana and Elgar on at Leamington’s All Saints Church on Saturday March 9.

The first concert for WSO of 2024 brings together three major 20th century works – Shostakovich’s Festive Overture, Vltava and Sárka from Má Vlast by Smetana and Elgar’s Second Symphony.

The concert will be conducted by the orchestra’s long-standing principal conductor, Roger Coull, also well known for his work with the Coull Quartet.

WSO chair and violin-player Chris Voss said: ‘This is an exciting but challenging programme that we know will lift the roof of All Saints Church.

“The works we are playing are all masterpieces with fabulous melodies that are very distinctively reminiscent of the countries where they were composed, and I would encourage all music lovers to attend.’

Tickets are £18/£15 (half price for children and students) are available from www.wso.org.uk
