Dulwich Symphony Orchestra is a local, community orchestra of dedicated members whose numbers are growing from strength-to-strength as the new 2016/2017 season begins.
Performed at the beautiful All Saints Church, Lovelace Road, West Dulwich, SE21, the DSO’s autumn/winter concert on Saturday 26th November, at 7pm features no less than three symphonies, presenting a master-class in this ambitious musical form.
The orchestra’s conductor, Leigh O’Hara says, “This concert features three very different symphonies. The ‘Haffner’; is a short but important work in Mozart’s output and one of his most joyous. Brahms is a composer that the orchestra hasn’t tackled for a while and his dramatic first symphony could be dubbed Beethoven’s tenth, an obvious influence. These two symphonies will be a fascinating contrast with Sibelius’ seventh and last, which is a single movement work and one of the greatest symphonic conceptions.”
For our Summer 2017 concert we are proud to announce that the DSO will be hosting a fundraising Gala concert to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the founding of St.Christopher’s Hospice by Dame Cicely Saunders.
