Hopping Across The North East From Hub To Hub

download (2)A musical treat is on offer as the Dolphin Centre prepares to host Darlington Orchestra’s annual Summer Concert.

The concert, on Saturday 2 July, aims to be an informal and accessible event and will feature a wide selection of classical music from various eras, styles and composers.

The Darlington Orchestra, a community orchestra featuring local amateur musicians, aims to share its love of music and organises two concerts a year. It does not have a set repertoire so the programme is different for every concert.

This year’s summer concert will include:

  • ‘Grand March from Aida’ by Verdi
  • ‘Pomp and Circumstance March No.4’ by Elgar
  • ‘Coriolan’ overture by Beethoven

There will also be a selection of music by Ivor Novello, Kenneth Platts and Johannes Brahms and a special guest appearance by the Hummersknott Academy Choirs.

A printed programme will be provided to give the audience details about the music and featured composers, which will include information specifically aimed at 5-11-year-olds to help them enjoy the concert.

Darlington Orchestra leader Angie Binns said:

“We’re delighted to be performing at Central Hall again this summer. This informal concert will be packed with a variety of short classical pieces across a range of styles and we’re pleased to welcome chamber choirs from Hummersknott Academy who will perform some music by Elton John and tunes from modern musicals.”

The concert takes place in the Central Hall, Dolphin Centre on Saturday 2 July, from 7.30pm. Tickets, £7 and £5 concessions, are available from the Dolphin Centre on 01325 406000 or though Eventbrite via the website at www.healthydarlington.co.uk/dolphinevents.
