New Tyneside Orchestra: Newcastle Cathedral
Returning to Newcastle Cathedral for their second concert of the year, New Tyneside Orchestra will be back on Saturday 25th June which is sure to be a crowd pleaser!
Conducted by Mark Edwards, the concert showcases three composers who were born in the UK and Felix Mendelssohn. The concert begins with his haunting Hebrides Overture which was inspired by an 1829 visit to the Scottish island of Staffa with its basalt sea cave known as Fingal’s Cave.
The overture is followed by Malcolm Arnold’s lighthearted Four Irish Dances. Then Penillion a symphonic poem in four movements, by Grace Williams who is considered the most notable Welsh female composer.
Following an intermission, New Tyneside Orchestra will conclude the concert with Symphony No 2 (A London Symphony) by Ralph Vaughn Williams.
Tickets are available from www.wegottickets.com or on the door and cost £10. For concessions the price is £8 and for students and unwaged £4.
