Concerts

This autumn, a change from our usual concert routine:

Lost Composers of the Great War 

The Leamington Chamber Orchestra in conjunction with Great War author Andrew Hamilton, will present an afternoon of music on Sunday 4th November at 3.30 pm by four composers who fell in the First World War.

Pieces by Leamington born and bred William Denis Browne as well as George Butterworth, Cecil Coles and F.S. Kelly will be interspersed with readings and biographies of the composers.

The concert will be held in the Great Hall of the magnificent 900-year-old Lord Leycester Hospital, since 1571 a sanctuary for service members wounded in war or in need, who carry out duties in the Hospital in their Elizabethan robes. Proceeds of the concert are in aid of the Hospital and the Leamington Chamber Orchestra.

Tickets are £15 and available via Warwick Books, lcoleamington@gmail.comdenehouse@btconnect.com or by telephoning 01789 842903.  Tickets will not be sold at the door due to limited numbers.

 

All our regular concerts are at Leamington Spa Town Hall, Parade, Royal Leamington Spa, CV32 4AT
