Oare String Orchestra September Concert

23 Sep 2017

Oare String Orchestra is Kent’s only specialist string orchestra.  We play a mixture of standard classical composers and the more accessible modern composers.

 For our September concert, the tenor Oliver Vincert is joining us as soloist in Finzi’s Dies Natalis.  We complete our cycle of the Handel Concerti Grossi with Open 6 No 5, and we will be playing the premier performance of Matthew Brown’s “Solitude after Dusk” for string orchestra.  We are also playing the Sibelius Romance, and closing with an orchestra arrangement of Schubert’s beautiful “Death and the Maiden” quartet.
