Date: Friday 8th March 2019
Time: 7.30pm - 9.30pm
Location: Pittville Pump Rooms
Following the huge success of last year's concert, Cheltenham Ladies' College returns to the Pump Room for its Spring Concert in March 2019.
The programme will open with three concerto movements performed by senior music scholars in their final year at College. The Symphony Orchestra will conclude the first half with Beethoven's Symphony No. 5, and the second half of the concert will feature Mozart's Requiem sung by CLC's Choral Society.
The Symphony Orchestra, comprising girls from across the age range at College, plays with verve and a real sense of energy – so apt for Beethoven's most famous symphony.
Members of the Orchestra will be joined by professional musicians, to accompany the singers in Mozart's remarkable Requiem. CLC's Choral Society is a community choir, comprising parents, members of staff and girls. Recent performances have included Fauré's Requiem; Time and Eternity by Dominic Hawley; Handel's Messiah, and Rossini's Petite Messe Solennelle.
The concert will be conducted by the College’s Director of Music, Dominic Hawley, who has directed the Chorus and Orchestra for almost 20 years.
Tickets are available from the Town Hall Box Office, priced £7.00 or £3.00 for concessions (senior citizen & registered disabled). Under 18s in full-time education are free.
