Programme Note

On Saturday 11 March, Burford Orchestra returns to Witney High Street Methodist Church for its annual Spring Concert, under the baton of Andrew Gray. The programme has a distinct Nordic flavour featuring Edvard Grieg’s Peer Gynt Suite, which contains perennial favourites ‘Morning’ and ‘In the Hall of the Mountain King’, and the evocative first symphony of Finnish composer Jean Sibelius. The concert kicks off at 7.30pm in rousing style with Johannes Brahms’s Academic Festival Overture, written to celebrate being awarded an honorary doctorate it incorporates a number of German student drinking songs.
