Under conductor Jonathan Trim, Stroud Symphony Orchestra will be performing a selection of English music with its roots firmly in the local landscape.
The concert will take place at Stroud Sub Rooms on Saturday, November 20th, 7.30pm, as part of Stroud Arts Festival. The programme of contrasted works by local composers including favourites such as Holst’s Jupiter from The Planets and movements from the Enigma Variations by Elgar, alongside exciting new discoveries including two compositions by the orchestra’s inspirational conductor, celebrated local composer Jonathan Trim. His beautiful and evocative musical landscape Heart Of The Five Valleys will feature alongside the world premiere of his recent composition Symphonia Pandemica.
A highlight of this concert will be The Lark Ascending by Vaughan Williams, voted as the UK’s favourite classical piece and performed by John Pearce, a violinist described by Venue as having ‘immense technical grasp…passionate commitment to everything he plays.’
