Live music is back!

HSO are thrilled to be able to bring a full orchestra programme back to HICC and it will be an evening full of joy!

Carl Maria von Weber’s opera “Der Freischütz” is a spooky tale of a huntsman who makes a pact with the devil.  The Overture, which opens the opera and also opens our concert, gives us melody, drama and a suitably triumphant ending.

A highlight of our concert will be the ever-popular Violin Concerto by Felix Mendelssohn in which the solo violin part will be played by Mira Marton.  Mira is a friend and fellow Royal College of Music student of our conductor, Avi Taler, the holder of our Bob and Beryl Harding Bursary for Student Conductors for 2019-20.  Avi should have conducted us in a full concert in September 2020 but as this was delayed by the pandemic, we’re delighted that Avi has not yet returned to his homeland of Israel and can conduct for us in 2021 instead.

We couldn’t resist bringing you the tuneful Symphony No. 8 by Franz Schubert.  Of course, it’s famous mainly for the fact that he didn’t finish it, but it’s also glorious to listen to right from the moody opening of the first movement to the relaxed and peaceful end of the second. 

We are so happy to be back that we feel like dancing so we end the concert with a gorgeous Viennese waltz by Johann Strauss II entitled “An Artist’s Life”.  Join us as we celebrate great music and great artists in live performance!
