A Summer Gala: in aid of Birmingham Children's Hospital Charity
Witness this handpicked orchestra of excellent musicians from the West Midlands and beyond, come together to play a dazzling programme composed by English and Finnish nationals, all in aid of the Birmingham Children's Hospital Charity's ‘Critical Journeys’ Appeal. The concert begins in a blaze of summery bliss and rhythmical boldness from the Foulds – April: England, op. 48, no. 1, met with the broad, sweet and nostalgic melodies given from William Walton's Violin Concerto – with Royal Academy of Music Violin alumni Charlotte Moseley . Culminating in sublime orchestral texture from Sibelius' 1st Symphony, which opens with the famous wistful Clarinet solo.
Conductor: Jack Lovell
Soloist: Charlotte Moseley
Leader: James Hamilton
