DCO’s concert – Saturday 6 May 2017

You missed it!  We had a great concert at St Martin’s Church, Dorking on Saturday 6th May.  Clare Kennington’s performance of Beethoven’s Violin Concerto was fabulous!  The concert included Rossini’s ‘the Italian Girl in Algiers’ and Haydn’s Symphony No. 99.  Andrew Morley was conducting – he was on top form and everyone – orchestra and audience – enjoyed themselves.

Clare, in addition to being DCO’s leader, is a freelance violinist across the UK and abroad and also has a varied career as a soloist and teacher.  Come along hear her!
