Oaklands School Hall
A young future star performer will join us for the dramatic cello concerto by French composer Camille Saint-SaŽns.  HSO complete the season with Stravinsky’s spectacular Firebird.

Stories from around the world feature in this last concert of the season by HSO.  Bizet’s L’Arlésienne Suite No. 1 was written for a play The Girl from Arles (the famous French town where Van Gogh lived).  Smetana beautifully portrays the scenery in his beloved Czech Republic in Vltava – the most popular section of his large work Ma Vlast (My Homeland).

We are very excited to be able to bring you a young soloist from the Yehudi Menuhin School in Surrey to play the romantic Cello Concerto by Saint-Saëns.  At time of writing we don’t know the identity of the performer but they are sure to be a name to watch for the future so don’t miss it! 

Completing the programme will be Stravinsky’s incredible Suite The Firebird.  A challenge for any orchestra, this will be a superb finale to our season.
