Concert Triumph! Above... just a few of many glowing comments on our Romance & Ritual concert. An enthusiastic audience of almost 900 cheered and clapped at the event, Nottingham Symphony Orchestra's first concert of the 17/18 season on Saturday 11th November. The programme, a night of ballet favourites performed in Nottingham's Royal Concert Hall, featured the Sandra Taylor School of Dance and the Keyworth School of Theatre Dance, in Stravinsky's Rite of Spring, Sleeping Beauty by Tchaikovsky, Montagues & Capulets by Prokofiev, Danse Macabre by Saint-Saëns, Clog Dance by Herold and many others. A great night!
Next Concert: Join NSO on Saturday 3rd March 2018 for an evening of English classics. The achingly beautiful Elgar Cello Concerto appears along with Holst's mighty Planets Suite. Soloist in the Elgar will be Latvian cellist Margarita Balanas, one of the most promising and versatile artists of her generation. To start the concert, a work that Walton described as "a non-stop gallop...slightly crazy, hilarious and vulgar", his Johannesburg Overture. With the world renowned Cantamus Girl's Choir featuring in the Holst it should be a super night. Tickets available online or on the door.
