Join Solent concert Orchestra for what could be our most exciting concert to date!

On Sunday, the 19th of May at 4 o’clock we will be performing (in Saint Mary‘s Church Twyford SO21 1NT) a program encompassing:

– Napoleon’s cannons and Moscow’s church bells from Tchaikovsky‘s 1812 overture;

– The wild witches of Mussorgsky’s “Night on the Bare Mountain”;

– the horses of Suppe’s cavalry overture;

– the Middle Eastern festival of Saint-Saëns’ “Bacchanale”;

– the enchantment of Delibes’ Ballet Sylvia;

– and our own Chris Coles will be taking to the piano keyboard to take us from the majestic mountains to the exquisite lakesides of Grieg’s Piano Concerto in A Minor, under the baton of our conductor Simon Wilkins.


All these much-loved and magnificent pieces in one afternoon. Please join us.

Free to children; adults £10 at the door or from
