NPO raise funds for cancer charity

NOTTINGHAM Philharmonic Orchestra will be taking part in a Macmillan Cancer Support Centenary Concert on Sunday, March 20, at Nottingham’s Royal Concert Hall.

Conductor Mark Heron and the orchestra will be presenting an exciting mix of popular classics to welcome in the spring.

Richard Strauss’s ebullient Till Eulenspeigel sees the titular hero come to a sticky end when his pranks get out of hand, while Max Bruch’s Violin Concerto is one of the most popular in the repertoire, and certainly the most familiar of the composer’s works.

The third piece in the concert is Dvorak’s Ninth Symphony – From The New World, written in America but filled with nostalgia for his Czech homeland, and a work that has been plundered for more than one popular ad campaign over the years, making it one of the most well-known of all symphonies.

Proceeds from the concert are to be shared with MacMillan Cancer Support. Call the box office for more details on 0115 9895555.
