ORCHESTRA OF THE SWAN BRINGS A TOUCH OF VIKING FLAVOUR TO RAISE MONEY FOR WORCESTER’S RORY THE ROBOT APPEAL
After an extremely successful concert on 21st September, Orchestra of the Swan (OOTS) will perform again at Huntingdon Hall, Worcester, on 2nd November to help raise money for Worcestershire’s Rory the Robot Appeal.
The second of three concerts at Huntingdon Hall, will be directed by OOTS virtuoso leader David Le Page from the violin as the audience is led through a Scandinavian and Slavic focused evening.
It will include largely undiscovered gems such as Dvořák’s ‘Miniatures’, a simple piece he wrote for his violinist friend, Suk’s ‘Meditation on the Old Czech Chorale St. Wenceslas’, a work of great power and presence, and Halvorsen’s ‘Three Hardanger fiddle pieces’, written for the traditional string instrument used to play Norway’s national music.
The concert will also feature popular and well-known interludes such as Grieg’s ‘Holberg Suite’ and ‘Two Elegiac Melodies’. Both of these beautiful pieces will linger hauntingly in the mind.
Tickets are £20 (concessions £17.50) and 50% of revenue on all tickets purchased using the code RORY will go directly towards helping the Rory the Robot Appeal radicalising treatment of Prostate Cancer in Worcestershire.
