Sudbury Symphony Orchestra is delighted to announce that their next concert will be on Sunday 31st March at 6 pm when Catherine May will be returning as soloist with songs from the operettas. Operetta falls somewhere between an opera and a musical, they are often satirical and witty, and tend to be much shorter and less complex than traditional operas. Their songs however are just as complex to perform and we will all be in for a treat this evening listening to Catherine's beautiful and dramatic voice as she guides us through her selection of songs.
In the second half of the evening's performance we will be playing Dvorak's New World Symphony, no. 9. The symphony was written during Dvorak's stay in the US setting up a Music Conservatory in New York to help American composer's find their own (non-European) voice. Dvorak had not strayed far from New York before writing this symphony but he was exposed to many American influences from all sections of society while in New York. The symphony shows the influence of both Afro-American and European folk music on his writing. This symphony is by far Dvorak's most popular work and rightly so.
Tickets are just £12 for adults (including complimentary concert programme) and £2 for children aged 16 and under. Tickets will be available from the end of February onwards from Compact Music, North Street, Sudbury and Sudbury Tourist Information (library). Or email: firstname.lastname@example.org. As usual a limited number of tickets will be available on the door.
We hope you will join us for this evening of really wonderful music.
