Next Saturday, I will be enjoying ‘old meets new’ when the St Albans Symphony Orchestra, performs a musical journey under their new conducter Bjorn Bantock.
The orchestra will play well known and loved pieces like Dvorak’s Symphony No 9 (my favourite!), Debussy’s Prelude a l’apres-midi d’une faune, Smetana’s Moldau and Prokofiev’s great ballet pieces from Romeo and Juliet (Suite 2).
This is Bjorn Bantock’s debut performance with SASO. He stated, “It’s hard to think of a better combination of favourite symphonic works with which to start a new season.” Bjorn hopes that as many people as possible will take the opportunity to come along and enjoy the evening.
The performance starts at 7.30pm, 16th October at St Saviour’s Church, Sandpit Lane, St Albans. Contact SASO if you would like a ticket, www.SASO.org.uk or phone 01727 857422. Tickets start at £1 for under 18s, up to £10-£14 for adults.
