Good News! With the much anticipated final easing of lockdown restrictions soon to arrive, plans are in place for few days of in-person rehearsal before the season ends. Then, the Orchestra will return (hopefully) to the concert platform with a concert in November to kick-off the 21/22 season. Keep watching this space and our social media channels for further information.
Lockdown Recording Over the last few months members of the Orchestra having been at home recording individual parts of Elgar's Nimrod, from his Enigma Variations. Committee member Nick Gibson, assisted by Sarah Brialey, has put the recordings together and you can listen to the result. Click here for a taste of lockdown NSO. Enjoy!
Happier Times Cast your mind back to 7th March last year, and NSO's last concert before lockdown. The evening began with the folk inspired Midvinter by Stenhammer, followed by a mesmerising performance of the Grieg Piano Concerto given by Beate Toyka. In the second half we had the mighty Sibelius 5th Symphony. A great night... and to remind you of that happy occasion here are a couple of clips...
Midvinter - Stenhammer
Piano Concerto in A minor - Grieg
