Symphony Orchestra to present celebration of the festive season


Wilmslow Symphony Orchestra will perform their Christmas concert at the Evans Theatre on Saturday 7th December.

The seasonal celebration will include classical favourites and Christmas specials along with carols for the audience and orchestra.

The concert begins with the ever popular Hansel and Gretel prelude by Humperdinck. It also includes Grieg's Peer Gynt Suite no 1 and Borodin's Polovtsian Dances.

Pat Quirk said "Over the years we've built up our own special Christmas favourites, and here they are again: Leroy Anderson's Sleigh Ride, the 'Merry Jazzed-Up Christmas' by our Principal Trombone Gareth Brown – specially revised!, and Christmas carols for you to join in with, expertly arranged by our clarinettist Geoff Thomason. And if this doesn't whet your appetite, then maybe our Christmas raffle will, with lots of prizes, including a Christmas hamper!"

The concert takes place at 7.45 p.m. on Saturday 7th December. Tickets cost £12 (concessions £10, under 18s only £2) and can be bought at the door, from the Ticket Secretary at 01925 756144 or through the Wilmslow Symphony Orchestra website.
