The orchestra expect to resume rehearsals at St Stephens school from Wednesday 16th September.
The Committee will meet at the school on the 9th Septmeber to complete a risk assessment and sort the logistics of ensuring we meet within Government guidelines, and advise all members of exact arrangements shortly afterwards.
Canterbury Orchestra’s Winter Concert presents three of the mainstays of the orchestral repertoire that are firmly lodged in the hearts and minds of concertgoers everywhere, opening with Mozart’s sparkling orchestration of themes from his opera, followed by Dvorak’s soulful and moving work for cello and orchestra and concluding with Beethoven’s turbulent fifth symphony.
