DCO’s next concert – Saturday 6 May

Clare Kennington_2015We look forward to seeing you on Saturday 6th May at St Martin’s Church, Dorking for our next concert, which starts at 7.30pm.

We have a special treat in store – Clare Kennington, DCO’s Leader, will be performing Beethoven’s Violin Concerto.  The programme also includes Rossini’s ‘the Italian Girl in Algiers’ and Haydn’s Symphony No. 99.  Andrew Morley will be conducting.

We are also very excited to be including in the concert the premier of a work written as part of our Young Composers’ Competition.  Local young composers in years 10-13 are invited to submit a 5-minute composition for up to five orchestral instruments.   The closing date for entries is 28 February.

Come along and join us to hear some great music and support our local young musicians.
