Programme Note

Dvorak's Cello Concerto is arguably the greatest of them all, and this magnificent work will be performed in this concert by internationally-known soloist Matthew Barley.
Also on the programme: Brahms's 2nd Symphony - known by some as his 'pastoral' and certainly his sunniest symphony - plus Smetana's effervescent Overture and Polka from The Bartered Bride.

There will be a retiring collection for The Forever Friends Appeal.
