Keynsham Orchestra has a spring bonanza for their next concert on Saturday March 8th at St. John’s Church (on the roundabout) with 3 composers who loved their countries and the countryside. The concert starts with Smetana’s Vltava from Ma Vlast (My Country) where he describes the journey of the river Moldau all the way from its source up in the mountains, past a hunt, a wedding, rapids and finally under the huge bridge in Prague bearing the statue of ‘Good’ King Wenceslas and on out to the sea. Wait for the surprise at the end! The Unfinished Symphony by Schubert may well be called this as, after two very powerful movements, there was no need for anything more, so it was finished! Schubert loved the countryside and often composed whilst taking walking holidays in the mountains. To complete the concert the orchestra will be playing Sibelius's 1st Symphony. Sibelius had a strong interest in the landscape of his country, Finland, and his music evokes images of the forest, cold and silence. Expect much variety and wonderful tunes on Saturday 8th March (7.30 pm) at St John's church, Keynsham, and enjoy the great sound from your local orchestra.
Tickets are £9-00 and £7-00 concessions with accompanied under 16’s free! Available on the door, or in advance from St. John’s Parish Office (behind the Church) or online at target="_blank" rel="nofollow">" target="_blank"> (booking fee applies). We look forward to seeing you all there
