Past concerts

The family concert often requires a narrator. We have been pleased to welcome a variety of talented individuals including some with TV reputations such as Colin Baker (who is also our President), Johnny Morris, Bill Oddie, Ian McCaskill, Michael Fish and others.

The orchestra has performed the majority of the main concertos in the repertoire, such as the Beethoven, Bruch, Brahms, Mendelssohn and Tchaikovsky Violin Concertos - the piano concertos of Grieg, Rachmaninov and Beethoven  Piano Concerto - the Dvorak and Elgar cello concertos. We have also performed less well known ones, such as the Bassoon Concerto by Koscheluch, Rodrigo's Concerto for Four Guitars, Kabalevski's Violin Concerto, The Arutjunjan Trumpet Concerto and the trombone concertos of Rimsky-Korsakov and Derek Bourgeois.  From time to time we present popular concerts, such as a Valentine's Evening, 'Strictly Some Dancing' and evenings of light music.  The list below is a record of all the pieces we have performed in public concerts:
