WELSH CHAMBER ORCHESTRA
As part of its Summer Tour of Wales, The Welsh Chamber Orchestra will visit the Torch Theatre, Milford Haven on Friday 16 June. Founded to fill the gap in the music making life of Wales between performances of solo and small chamber music ensembles and those of the symphony orchestra, this evening of sheer delight should not missed.
Since its inception in 1986, the Orchestra has performed with many of the world’s greatest soloists, undertaken several European concert tours as well as performing throughout the UK. For many years it was resident chamber orchestra at the Swansea International Concert Series where its innovative policy of giving second performances of works by Welsh composers was highly successful.
The Orchestra has recorded numerous television programmes including a New York Film Festival prize-winning Opera series. Their first commercial CD was a disc of works by William Mathias, two CDs of works by Alun Hoddinott have since been released, and a further CD of Michael Tippett’s works is due to be issued.
A key part of the orchestra’s artistic policy is to perform in those areas in Wales that are relatively ill-served with occasions to hear orchestral music compared to other parts of the country. A residency at Glyndŵr University in Wrexham has enabled the provision of schools’ concerts in the north east of Wales, introducing thousands of school children to their first live orchestral concert experience. The orchestra is proud to be associated with the William Mathias Centre in Caernarfon.
The Welsh Chamber Orchestra will visit the Torch Theatre on Friday 16 June at 7.30pm. Tickets are £16 / Concessions: £15. Tickets can be purchased from the Box Office at the Torch Theatre on 01646 695267 or by clicking here.
