The 2017/18 season is the Brent Symphony Orchestra’s 107th year. We aspire to perform the finest orchestral music, bringing together pieces you may well have heard of, together with something new. Recent concerts have featured symphonies by Elgar, Bruckner, Mahler, Nielsen and Vaughan Williams; concertos by Sibelius and Strauss and also work by Bernstein, Mozart, Ravel and Stravinsky.
We have had three fantastic concerts so far this season with our sellout Christmas concert and our annual charity concert in aid of Elders Voice being highlights so far.
Our final concert features the celebrated clarinetist Michael Whight in Stanford’s clarinet concerto. The concert opens with Gershwin’s bubbly overture containing I Got Rythym and Holst’s self-described ‘mood pictures’ – The Planets with Colin Matthew’s Pluto completing the planetary line up and a fitting way to bring this concert and our season to a close.
